Despite the works of Monteverdi and Gluck, and I do love both, this theme has never gotten its final Opera.
I must admit it is one of my favourite themes, together with the Kore/Persephone myth. And that despite the intensity of this drawing, a work I consider to be one of my best, the story of Orpheus and Eurydice is begging me to be taken up once again. Which is diffcult as this work is, in itself, difficult for me to make any better. But the desire exists to try and do so.
