Seattle Opera Podcast

Dec 15, 2021

Stephen Stubbs, conductor of Seattle Opera’s upcoming ORFEO ED EURIDICE, by Gluck, joined us last year for an intermission chat when we rebroadcast Gluck’s IPHIGÉNIE EN TAURIDE. A native Seattleite, student (and professor) at University of Washington, Stubbs has been a leader in the world of early music for three decades. Among the hundreds of recordings he has made, his 2015 DESCENTE D’ORPHÉE AUX ENFERS (by Charpentier) won a Grammy for Best Opera Recording. He first appeared at Seattle Opera in 2007’s GIULIO CESARE, playing theorbo, and conducted our first-ever presentation with music by Monteverdi, 2017’s THE COMBAT. In this conversation Stubbs discusses Gluck with Christina Scheppelmann.
