Orpheus

Sat 19 November

Opera North - Orpheus

A RE-IMAGINING OF MONTEVERDI’S OPERA
AFTER CLAUDIO MONTEVERDI 

The story begins with the wedding of Orpheus – a musician of mythical power – to Eurydice. But the celebrations are cut brutally short by Eurydice’s sudden death. This is a grief too great for Orpheus to bear, and he resolves to do anything he can to return her to life.

Honouring Monteverdi’s pioneering spirit, this new version of Orpheus is born of a union of uniquely talented singers and musicians from both the South Asian and western classical traditions, who invite us to join them in a thrilling reimagining of a beautiful baroque masterpiece.

In collaboration with South Asian Arts
