ORPHEUS AND EURYDICE
Presented by Judith Wright Centre, Blue Roo Theatre Company and Opera Queensland's Open Stage

One of the greatest operatic love stories of all time, Orpheus and Eurydice, returns to the stage this December #atthejudy. This thrilling collaboration reunites the awe-inspiring Blue Roo ensemble with five of Opera Queensland's leading singers in a brand new English translation of Gluck's opera, along with a live orchestra of outstanding local musicians.

The power of Gluck’s classic opera is the emotional journey of the main characters, Orpheus, Eurydice and Cupid portrayed by OperaQ's principal vocalists. The Blue Roo ensemble accompany OperaQ as the chorus of Nymphs, Shepherds, Furies, and Blessed Spirits. The Blue Roo ensemble embodies the emotional journey of the main characters and portray's it through gesture and physicality to heighten the effect of this deeply moving story. This is just one of the many ways in which OperaQ and Blue Roo continue to redefine inclusive community engagement.
