In celebration of the composer's 85th birthday, LSU presents the American Collegiate Premiere of Philip Glass' Orphée.
In his re-imagining of the timeless legend of Orpheus, celebrated minimalist composer Philip Glass created the first opera of his Cocteau Trilogy, basing his work on the French artist's surreal film of the mid-20th century.
The poet Orphée, his wife Eurydice, and a mysterious Princess interact within the worlds of the living and the dead. In the end, love triumphs, as Orphée returns himself and his beloved to mortal life and newfound emotional strength.
