Orphée Tickets

London Opera
Phillip Glass opera Orphée heads to the London Coliseum this November.
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 staging frequently got in the way of the artistic interpretation; the scrim projections particular seemed often unconnected to the events on stage.

    Just to say that Balcony seats are a bit unconfortable. Thank you.
