about


Dance, dance, otherwise we are lost!

- Pina Bausch

Hailed as a true event when it entered the repertoire in 2005, Orphée et Eurydice, a major work by the choreographer Pina Bausch, brings to life with great force one of the most celebrated myths in Western culture. Bausch revisits Gluck’s work in the form of a danced opera, exploring in their intimate detail the links between movement and song. Fascinated by what “shakes people up”, she brings to the score a disturbingly human quality, attaining through dance a universal vision of love of which she offers a sumptuous incarnation.
