SUBJECT: Grenfell Grenfell Opera Series begins new season
DATE: Oct. 1,2009
Orphée et Eurydice (Orpheus and Eurydices) is based on the tragic Greek classical myth of Orpheus, who must use his celestial musical talents to journey through the underworld to retrieve his beloved Eurydices.
This 2000 production is directed by John Eliot Gardiner. Accompanied by the Monteverdi Choir, the stage set is fairly minimalist and highlights the acting and the singing. Overall, it promises to be a stellar performance!
The opera presentation will take place Sunday, Oct. 4, at 7 p.m. in FC2014 of the Forest Centre. Refreshments will be served. Dr. Ron Richards will provide an introduction and a synopsis.
