Current Story for three classics of operaThis innovative multidisciplinary great format show is a present-time recreation of Orpheus classical myth combining theater, cinema and painting with traditional operatic and orchestral work, which staging demands both vocal virtuosity as well as acting skills.Few Greco-Latin myths are as powerful and interesting as that of the Thracian singer Orpehus, son of Apollo and Poetry Muse Calliope, whose singing could even move the Gods.

W. Gluck (Viena, 1762; rev., París, 1774);And last but not least, the ironic 19th Century version written by J. Offenbach, Orphée aux enfers (París, 1858, rev. 1874
