Don’t hide within yourself.
Let love save you.
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.
