Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Opera Columbus and Toronto’s Against the Grain Theatre collaborate on a new co-production of Gluck/Berlioz’s groundbreaking opera Orphée. This re-imagined production looks to explore the gripping and timeless love story of Orpheus and Eurydice through the lens of today’s technology. While staying true to the original score of and honouring the traditions of Baroque opera, this production pushes the boundaries of operatic presentation through digital sound augmentation, captivating choreography, video projections, and aerial artistry. Countertenor Siman Chung performs the title role, Topher Mokrzewski conducts and Joel Ivany acts as Stage Director. These performances are sung in French with English surtitles.
