Orpheus in the Underworld (Orpheus in Hell)

Saturday Oct 24 18:30       ul. Lubicz 48
"Orpheus in the Underworld" or "Orpheus in Hell" is a comic operetta by French composer Jacques Offenbach (French libretto by Hector Crémieux and Ludovic Halévy), a satirical treatment of the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Offenbach tells the satirical version of their marriage, where the spouses are bored with each other, and look elsewhere for excitement, resulting in the gods' intervention. The composer takes an opportunity to poke fun at the elite's abuse of power, ubiquitous hypocrisy, twisted morality and public deception. This witty, ingenious opera is directed by Włodzimierz Nurkowski, with musical direction by Tomasz Tokarczyk, and set and costume design by Anna Sekuła.
