Time Zone Theatre presents Gluck's most famous opera in June 2014 at the Rose Playhouse, Bankside!
The opera by Christoph Willibald Gluck is based on the myth of Orpheus, who goes to the Underworld to save his wife Eurydice. Together with musical director Andrew Charity (musical director of the OLIVIER-award winning production of La Boheme in 2009), Pamela Schermann directs this opera in the very unique space of the Rose Playhouse, Bankside for 12 performances in June 2014 - more information here.
The protagonist of this opera pushes and redefines boundaries, he believes in himself and the possibility to change his faith. The celebration of our human strength both as individuals and as a community are the focus of this production. We invite our local community in Southwark to take part in this production by participating in free workshops on acting and singing, and performing in the opera alongside professional singers.
