description

The myth surrounding Orpheus has provided artistic inspiration for numerous composers, painters and directors over the centuries. As a rule, the plots tend to focus on Orpheus’ grief following the death of his wife Eurydice and his attempts to retrieve her from the underworld. Choreographers Dominique Hervieu and José Montalvo instead place Orpheus at the center of the story as an artist who charms gods and mortals alike with wit and song – even moving rocks to tears. Classical music and singing merges with pop music, Hip-hop and break-dance. Scores by Monteverdi, Gluck, Tchaikovsky and Philip Glass, among others, accompany the hero as he turns into a one-legged hip-hop dancer or into an acrobat on stilts. Nine dancers and seven singers and instrumentalists dance to the sound of bush drums. The production’s lavish design befits this tale of a royal son.
