Opera Monday - Janet Baker - Orfeo ed Euridice - Che faro senza Euridice

Orfeo has been allowed to bring back his wife from Hades as long as he does not look upon her face until they are back on earth. However, urged by Euridice, he turns around and looks at her and she immediately dies. Grief-stricken, he wonders what he will ever do without his love.
