The Mask of Orpheus

Receiving its first full staging in London since its 1986 premiere at the London Coliseum, The Mask of Orpheus is Birtwistle‘s complex retelling of the Orpheus myth.

Scored for massive orchestral forces, The Mask of Orpheus, explores the contradictions in the various versions of the famous Greek tragedy, building a three-dimensional picture that leads us from inconsolable grief to acceptance and transformation.
