L'Orfeo

L'Orfeo — Opera Studio Nederland

The death of Orfeo’s newly wedded Euridice is fuel for his wounded ego, inspiring him to greater heights and introducting him to the dark temptations of an underworld that go hand in hand with greater stardom and the  irresistible inflation of his narcissism.

An organised landscape of aluminum tables crossing the path of the orchestra pit and winding through the public space. Dozens of industrial aluminum lamps hang like serene celestial bodies in space. A space that turns Orfeo’s soul inside out as soon as the underworld appears, and a lonely graveyard of furniture graces the stage.

“The underworld of the soul is not a comfortable place for the ego.” -Pierre Audi-

“Door het simpel omdraaien van de stukken ontstond een passende 'hades'. Deze vondst was van de hand van het jonge ontwerpduo Clement & Sanôu.
