Time Out says
The ENO continues its quixotic mission to stage pretty much every Orpheus-inspired opera in existence with this 21st century classic. Avant garde composer Philip Glass has put a minimalist spin on this mythical narrative, full of ideas of death and immortality. ‘Orphée’ draws on Jean Cocteau’s 1950 film of the same name, so director Netia Jones will use projected footage from it in a cinema-inspired staging. Nicholas Lester and Sarah Tynan will play its central pairing, with Geoffrey Paterson conducting.
