THIS IS PASSION
Heartbroken Orpheus has been granted the chance to bring his beloved wife Eurydice back from the underworld with one condition; he must not look at her – even for a moment – on their long journey home. But how can he resist the temptation to look into the eyes of his true love?
Created in association with internationally renowned contemporary circus company Circa and set to some of the most stirring music ever written; this is opera like you’ve never seen before – mixing thrilling acrobatics, exquisite singing and striking video design to take us to hell and back.
