Orpheus and Eurydice

Orpheus and Eurydice

/based on Ovid and Virgil/

An imitation of ancient tragedy. It tells the myth in short. Here the parts of a classical Greek tragedy are shown and described. The narrator helps the audience understand its complexity. Together with the other two actors he impersonates the characters or forms a choir which played an important role in the ancient theatre. The epilog of the show is the following:

“What love has won

Impatience will lose.

Let these words be remembered

By a proverb lover.”
