ORPHEUS & EURYDICE
Los Angeles Opera will team up with The Joffrey Ballet in its daring new production of Glucks ORPHEUS & EURYDICE, March 10-25 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Conducted by James Conlon, sung in French with English subtitles, the opera stars Maxim Mironov, Lisette Oropesa and Liv Redpath. Director, choreographer and designer John Neumeir has created an original version of the classic opera, one which showcases the virtuoso dancers of the Joffrey Ballet and stage designs inspired by Arnold Bocklins symbolist painting, Isle of the Dead.
ORPHEUS & EURYDICE is a co-production of LA Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Joffrey Ballet and Hamburg Ballet.
Neumeier creates psychologically intense works that straddle the world of drama and dance, said the New York Times.
