Orphée et Eurydice - Nederlandse Reisopera
Hallucinatory stagings of Orphean operas have been done before: what makes this production extraordinary is its emotional punch and the breathtaking aesthetic with which it delivers it. Right from the start, when Eurydice drops dead at the wedding during a game of blind man’s buff, it grabs you by the throat and puts a lump in it that stays there until the end. Dieuweke van Reij’s undulating, stony set, lit by bold and beautiful lighting on a space-opening cyclorama, doubles as the physical world and Orpheus’ inner life.
