Orpheus “A performance of such rapturous, fantastic, colourful vitality that it snatches away the fog from your ears and eyes, and you experience nothing less than the birth of theatre.” [Die Zeit] Barrie Kosky’s powerful and colourful staging of – one of our most popular productions – begins as a boisterous festival of music and love in an Arcadian paradise. It goes on to tell the story of Orpheus' journey through the underworld as a voyage into himself. The unusual new instrumentation by the Uzbekistan composer Elena Kats-Chernin is also a colourful touch. “An unreal, magic world, artificial and enchanting at the same time – Dionysian.” [Berliner Zeitung]
