Event: (m)Orpheus – September 2023

How far would you go to save everything you love?

From our unique place in Moana Oceania, Neil Ieremia directs a re-imagining of Gluck’s dance opera masterpiece Orpheus and Eurydice. Blending rich storytelling traditions of the Pacific with the themes of Greek tragedy, (m)Orpheus tells a story of a man willing to risk everything for love, but unable to find love in himself.

Starring Kiwi-Samoan baritone Samson Setu, and Aotearoa New Zealand soprano Deborah Wai Kapohe, (m)Orpheus is performed in English and features a cast and ensemble of Māori and Pasifika performers.

Conductor Marc Taddei leads a 10-piece modern chamber ensemble from the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and Orchestra Wellington in each city, performing a re-orchestration of Gluck’s music, by renowned New Zealand composer Gareth Farr. This is a co-production between NZ Opera and Black Grace.
