Density512 presents: Evan Lawson’s Orpheus

Posted by on Jun 6, 2019

In collaboration with prismatx ensemble Monteverdi. Lully. Telemann. Rameau. Gluck. Haydn. Offenbach. Stravinsky. Glass. The tragic love story of Orpheus and Eurydice has been celebrated by musicians for as long as we have had means to do so. But what about Orpheus’s affair with fellow argonaut, Caläis? In a preview of our upcoming prismatx series (creating music inspired by art), Density512 presents Evan Lawson’s Orpheus, a new opera inspired by this little-known love triangle and a reaction to the censorship of queer elements in Greek mythology.

Host: John Aielli

Producer: Diedre Gott

Engineer: Cliff Hargrove
