Orpheus & Eurydice is the final production of Opera Queensland’s 2019 season and what a way to finish!
A bold and striking performance sung in Italian with English subtitles that seemed to magically disappear into thin air.
Minimalist stage sets and costuming with a hint of Handmaid’s Tale lets you focus on all the amazing athleticism of the circus performers that is taking place in this stark bare asylum.
It’s a modern and edgy way to tell the tragic love story of Orpheus and Eurydice.
The beautiful sounds of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra and Opera Queensland Chorus weave their magic into the performance as does the amazing antics of the Orpheus and Eurydice Circa Ensemble who astound and, at times, left the audience gasping in disbelief.
Even for the uninitiated, this is an amazing performance all brought together beautifully by the Queensland Symphony Orchestra.
One word – AMAZING!!
Congratulations Opera Queensland.
