Spread bread evenly in a jelly roll pan and toast for 20 minutes at 350°. Cool to room temperature.
In a medium bowl beat together eggs, half-and-half, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Pour egg mixture over cooled toasted bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Combine agave, cornstarch, orange zest and a pinch of salt. Fold in cherries. Pour into a greased 13×9 baking pan.
Place the chilled bread mixture on top of the fruit mixture. Drizzle the melted butter over the bread.
Bake at 400° for 30 minutes or until golden brown and sauce has thickened. Cover with foil if the top is getting too brown.
