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.
