Opera in three acts, one part, in Italian, with Hungarian and English surtitles
According to the myth, Orpheus travels to the underworld for his dead lover, Eurydice, but he can only take her back with him is he does not look at her, if he does not look back as they return to the land of the living. Director Zita Szenteczki is not the first to find a special meaning to the title characters’ relationship in Christoph Willibald Gluck’s opera Orfeo ed Euridice. Does the man really want to get the woman back? Does the woman really want to return to the man? The piece was already performed in the Solti Hall of the Liszt Academy in 2016, and now it is brought to the stage of Eiffel Art Studios in a new, special version in which Orpheus is played by the conductor himself.
Premiere: Jan. 29, 2023
