Following Satyagraha and the Olivier Award-winning Akhnaten, ENO’s association with Philip Glass continues with a new production of Orphée.
Based on Jean Cocteau’s 1950 film, Glass’s opera is a parable about the dangers of self-obsession. Though married to Eurydice, Orphée falls in love with an enigmatic Princess. He then moves between the worlds of the living and the dead becoming obsessed with immortality.
Director Netia Jones makes her ENO debut. Her staging combines live action and projection, including fragments of Cocteau’s celebrated film. British conductor Geoffrey Paterson makes his ENO debut.
Baritone Nicholas Lester leads the cast in the title role with Sarah Tynan singing her second Eurydice of the season. They are joined by former ENO Harewood Artists Nicky Spence and Anthony Gregory. Making her ENO debut as the Princess is soprano Jennifer France, a recipient of a 2018 Critics’ Circle Award.
The cast for Orphée includes Nicholas Lester, Sarah Tynan, Jennifer France, Nicky Spence, Anthony Gregory, Clive Bayley, Simon Shibambu, Rachael Lloyd and William Morgan.
