    AT THE OPERA Farewell to Paris

    Gluck, C. Echo et Narcisse. Drame lyrique in three acts and a prologue. Libretto by Ludwig Theodore von Tschudi, after Ovid. First performed Paris, 1779.

    ECHO: Sohie Boulin, sop NARCISSE: Kurt Streit, ten AMOUR: Deborah Mansell, cont Hamburg Opera Ch; Concerto Cologne/Ren Jacobs.1:35:48

    Narcissus is in love with his own reflection, alienating Echo, who loves him. Amour, the god of love, claims that another god is working to separate them. Echo thinks that another woman is responsible at first, but later realises that Narcissus himself is at fault. As appeals to friends or gods cannot change the situation, Echo thinks the only solution is death. Only then does Narcissus realise the problem and that he should die also. Their friends and gods intervene to prevent this, bringing both lovers to self-awareness and reconciliation.

    Philidor, F-A. Overture, Prologue, Part 1, from Carmen saeculare (1779).Donald Litaker, ten; Sagittarius Vocal Ensemble; La Grande curie et la Chambre du Roy/Jean-Claude Malgoire.10:19
