Orpheus in the Underworld

0 Love It
Save it
Scottish Opera and Northern Ireland Opera present Offenbach's irreverent romp. Originally written to satirise Napoleon III's Paris, Rory Bremner's new translation updates the action to the present day, drawing parallels with a media-savvy, celebrity-obsessed world. Artistic director of Northern Ireland Opera, Oliver Mears, directs a fast-moving production full of wit, mayhem and madness. The ensemble cast includes Marie Claire Breen, Brendan Collins, Christopher Diffey, Máire Flavin, Jane Harrington, Claire Haslin, Daire Haplin, Ross McInroy, Olivia Ray, Gavan Ring and Nicholas Sharratt. With piano accompaniment from pianist Ruth Wilkinson. (Sung in English - two hours, including interval.)
