Wonderful singers, especially Orpheus , she was unforgettable. A magnificent orchestra and chorus! They were wonderful. But the rest? The sets and strobe/ tv / flashes were like revisiting German theatre in the 1980’s. So over! Quite a few audience members left because they couldn’t take it. It hurt our eyes- and expressed nothing. The dancers were possibly good, but who would know? They barefoot danced , and were dressed up in a mixture of Flower Power colors , and modernized Nijinsky- costumes, what they danced had nothing to do with the opera. They were such a distraction! One sublime singer, one wonderful orchestra, and a beautifully singing chorus, who , for no reason at all, were dressed in black and hidden away in the pit. Why??The directors and choreographer and set / costume designers over- self- indulged. The result was an amateurish production, where the gripping story of Orpheus and Eurydike were sacrificed because the directors were busy being childish and .., destroying the work. Gluck’s music and the story are so profound, that If they just dare to tell the story on stage, the audience will go home shattered and moved and inspired. But this was a mess of a production.
