Orphée et Eurydice

A film by Myriam Hoyer

Back
The visual urgency that runs through Romeo Castellucci’s theater finds its own field of expression in the opera production as witnessed by the full screening of Orphée et Eurydice. The myth of Orpheus is translated into a reflection on the abysmal condition of coma, reliving the exceptionality of a device capable of ring-welding the music performed in the theater of La Monnaie and the room of the Inkendaal rehabilitation center where Els, a young woman suffering from Locked-in Syndrome, is hospitalized. Gluck’s mythology and music become mirrors in which human fragility is reflected recognizing to art “the duty to think about the human condition, even the most extreme” (Romeo Castellucci).
