O + E (E) - Seattle Opera


  • Seattle Opera Rehearsal Studios 200 Terry Avenue North Seattle, WA, 98109 United States (map)

Journey to hell and back with a new twist on Gluck’s classic telling of Orpheus and Eurydice. In this timeless tale of love lost, lamented, and reborn, the anointed artist O slips into a feverish dream while sitting vigil at the hospital bedside of her mortally wounded wife. In the blink of an eye, O experiences a flood of emotional trials which threaten to forever extinguish the bond she shares with her beloved E. After demonstrating the depth of their love, O and E are led back from the brink by A (Amore) – the surgeon with the power to save E's life. A groundbreaking musical adaptation of the legendary protagonist’s descent into grief and subsequent return to grace receives an innovative and intimate staging with all-female leading characters.
