CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
The story begins with the wedding of Orfeo, a musician of almost magical power, to Euridice. The announcement of Euridice's sudden death cuts the wedding celebrations brutally short. For Orfeo, who had loved her for so long, the news is almost beyond endurance. He resolves to do the seemingly impossible: to return her to life, at whatever the cost.
