Grassroots Opera – Orfeo ed Euridice – Gluck
Saturday 12 January, 7.30pm, St Endellion Church
The immediacy of opera in the setting of St Endellion is an experience like no other. Here we offer a terrific rendering of Gluck’s opera by Grassroots Opera, a new company of young professional singers who specialize in presenting accessible opera, in the original language, in intimate spaces and rural locations. Orfeo ed Euridice, with its plot originating in Greek mythology, focuses on Orfeo’s grief at the loss of his wife, and his journey into the underworld to retrieve her. In this production, Grassroots Opera explore the lines between love and obsession, reality and imagination.
