Two of Queensland’s foremost arts organisations joined forces to present the Opening Night of Orpheus & Eurydice on 24 October, a circus opera infused with desire and longing that melds music and singing with the physicality of movement. Opera Queensland has partnered, for the first time, with internationally renowned contemporary circus company Circa to stage the opera until 9 November, 2019 at Queensland Performing Arts Centre’s Playhouse. Orpheus & Eurydice is inspired by the ancient Greek myth about Orpheus, the god of music, and his journey to the underworld to save his beloved bride, Eurydice.
