weaves the translucent 16th century vocal writing of the first ever opera composer, Jacopo Peri, into a distinctively modern opera by Stephen Oliver. Performed in a new semi-staged production with a cast of 18 singers and an onstage ensemble of eight players, it is an enthralling piece of theatre combining old with new, ideally suited to a cast of young singers.Performers Eva Ganizate (Daphne), Ellie Laughame (Euridice), Nina Lejderman (First Nymph), Nathalie Chalkley (Second Nymph), Lucy Hall (Third Nymph), Susanna Hurrall (Forth Nymph), Catia Moreso (Proserpina), Maire Flavin (Venus), Michal Czemiawski (Arcetro), Ben Williamson (Tragedy), Paul Curievici (Orpheus), Jorge Navarro-Colorado (Aminta), Clement Hetherington (Shepherd), Bo Wang (Thyrsis), Matthew Wright (Pluto), Matthew Stiff (Charon), Thomas Faulkner (Rhadamantus), Jake Arditti (Ensemble).
