Orpheus (full title: Die wunderbare Best ndigkeit der Liebe oder
Orpheus, The Wonderful Constancy of Love, or Orpheus) is an opera
in three acts by the German composer Georg Philipp Telemann. It was
first performed in a concert version at the Theater am G nsemarkt,
Hamburg on 9 March 1726. The anonymous libretto is based on Orph e
by Michel du Boulay, originally set by the French composer Louis
Lully. Most of the work is in German but it also contains passages
in French and Italian drawn from famous operas by Handel and
Jean-Baptiste Lully. The music to these words is Telemann's own,
however. The manuscript score of Orpheus was not rediscovered until
the late 20th century. Queen Orasia of Thrace is in love with
Orpheus, but he rejects her in favour of Eurydice. The queen plots
to kill Eurydice as she is picking flowers in a garden.
