Originally, the story takes place in the middle of Greek mythology. This time, however, interpreted by Swedish director Åsa Kalmér and set designer Bente Rolandsdotter, the plot is set in present day. It takes off in the home of a couple whose daily life and relationship could be anyones. But in the moment of death, an undiscovered inner world also appears. Mind´s winding paths open with all it´s dreams and doubts, happiness, trust and fear – all intertwined with the classical, ravishing music by Christoph Willibald Gluck.
Mirrored through a relationship outside the norm, Orfeo & Euridice meet love’s demands and opportunities, reflected in a modern-day mythology. Love is to strive to really be seen by the other. And after all, love literally seems to conquer all. Even death.
Orfeo & Euridice goes on tour 7–18 April 2018. See you in Härnösand, Sundsvall and Östersund.
