C.W. Gluck's second Iphegenia opera was the last in his string of hits in Paris. It's also among the finest and most purely expressive of all his operas, heard here with a powerful and moving performance by mezzo-soprano Susan Graham in the title role, with baritone Russell Braun as her brother Orestes, in a Canadian Opera Company production led by conductor Pablo Heras-Casado.
