If I was Orpheus in 2021
« Who would still dare to turn around? »
From May 5 to June 16 2021
Orpheus, poet and musician of Greek mythology, knew as much how to charm ferocious beasts as he did trees, humans or the gods themselves. Thanks to his music and his enchanting powers, he succeeds in bewitching the terrible Cerberus to bring back from Hell, Eurydice, his beloved. But to get out of Hell, you must not look back ... For this competition, Wipplay and Opéra Comique invite you to imagine Orpheus' journey today. What would it look like in 2021? Please feel free to share your interpretation of this mythological figure. We all have an "enchanting" power to animate nature and things, bewitch dragons and get out of Hell.
