orpheus

The most haunting love story ever told

Prepare to be transported to 1930s Paris where legendary musician, Django Reinhardt, has been cast as the lead in a new production of Orpheus.

Your host for the evening is the charismatic songstress Yvette Pépin. With her troupe of operatic players she will perform the thrilling tale of Orpheus’s ill-fated descent into the underworld to reclaim his lost love, Eurydice.

Set to a live score of Hot Club jazz, opera and French chanson, Orpheus is a musical re-imagining of the epic Greek myth.

Battersea Arts Centre’s opulent Grand Hall complete with its majestic 20th century organ will become a 1930s music hall, providing the setting for a glamorous and unique night out.

Premiered in spring 2013. Orpheus was revived at Battersea Arts Centre in spring 2014. Read about Orpheus at the Salzburg Festival in August 2014.

In autumn 2015, Little Bulb completed their largest tour to date of Orpheus with performances at The Royal Opera House, Bristol Old Vic, Nuffield Southampton, Liverpool Everyman and Birmingham Repertory Theatre.

A Little Bulb & Battersea Arts Centre co-production.
