The Met Opera invites rising America composer Matthew Aucoin to their hallowed halls with the premiere of his captivating reimagining of the famous Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice in 2021.
Orpheus and Eurydice's tale of love, despair and heroism has inspired composers and artists from across the artistic spectrum for centuries. Traditionally told from Orpheus' point of view, this ancient story is turned on its head with librettist Sarah Ruhl flipping the narrative and presenting the tale from Eurydice's point of view. Coupled with Aucoin's evocative score and immersive staging from Mary Zimmerman Eurydice is a sweeping new opera which is sure to delight and excite its audiences.
Soprano Erin Morley stars in the titular role, alongside baritone Joshua Hopkins as Orpheus and with Yannick Nezet-Seguin at the helm as the production's conductor.
