Opera Australia - Orpheus & Eurydice
Fri, 12th to 31st January

Orpheus & Eurydice

Joan Sutherland Theatre, Sydney

Presented by Opera Australia and Sydney Festival in association with Circa
Journey to the underworld and back with the grieving Orpheus. This is opera like you've never seen before.

Ended on Friday, 12 January 2024


Journey to the underworld and back. Gluck's heartbreaking opera follows the grieving Orpheus into the jaws of Hades to rescue his beloved Eurydice. He must complete his quest without looking back, or lose Eurydice forever.

Awe-inspiring acrobatics meet Gluck's exquisite music in a genre-busting production, making this a highlight of Sydney Festival.
Projections seamlessly integrate surtitles into the action on stage, as brilliant singers come together with the trailblazing artists of Circa, one of Australia's most successful cultural exports.

In this visually stunning production, Circa's Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz has created a mesmerising experience, exploring the intersection between love and death that is the beating heart of Orpheus & Eurydice.

The role of Orpheus demands vocal beauty and dramatic virtuosity, and we're delighted to bring the world's best to your stage in sensational French countertenor Christophe Dumaux.
He performs opposite Australian soprano Cathy-Di Zhang, making her role debut singing both Eurydice and Amor under the baton of conductor Dane Lam.
