Orphée
Pittsburgh Opera

At the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts
THE LIFE OF AN ARTIST, BETWEEN THE WORLDS OF THE LIVING AND THE DEAD


The myth of Orpheus and Eurydice gets a "lyrical, almost seductive" (Washington Times) makeover from Philip Glass, via French visionary Jean Cocteau: the poet Orphee becomes obsessed with mysterious messages that lead to a mysterious Princess, who is Death in disguise. Love eventually triumphs...but not without a price.
UNDERSTAND EVERY WORD! Sung in French with English texts projected above the stage.
Choose ORPHEE for mythological touchstones, an ultra-chic production, and sensational singing.
