The operatic reinvention of Jean Cocteau's film by the same name, Pittsburgh Opera's production of "Orphée" is what The Washington Times called "lyrical, even seductive." The poet Orphée falls for the beautiful Princess, but his lust takes a toll on his wife and career, and ultimately leads to forging a bargain with the Underworld.

Pittsburgh Opera's Website

Glass uses repeating musical ideas as building blocks -- now snatches of jazz in the opening party scene, now tension you can cut with a knife mounting between Orphee and his wife, Eurydice, as they argue about his obsession with his art.
