on the WORLD PREMIERE of a new version of
               ORPHEUS and EURIDICE

or when a theatre song cycle becomes a mini-opera and
  an olympic swimming pool becomes an operatic stage

So you better believe it when we say that this mini-opera incarnation of Ricky Ian Gordon's ORPHEUS and EURIDICE is not like anything you've seen before.

Credit the creative and adventurous imagination of LONG BEACH OPERA's Artistic and General Director, the Viennese conductor and stage director ANDREAS MITISEK who has enlisted modern technology in the service of art to give us this one-of-a kind multi-media production of a contemporary work, born from grief and inspired by a legend from antiquity.

This exciting and challenging production runs at the BELMONT PLAZA OLYMPIC POOL in Long Beach, California on February 17, 18 and 19, 2008. Visit the LONG BEACH OPERA website for tickets and more information.

Commissioned by virtuoso clarinetist TODD PALMER, the work was originally staged by the Lincoln Center in 2005 as a piece for soprano, clarinet and piano with ELIZABETH FUTRAL and TODD PALMER who also perform the lead roles in this new version.

In this brief preview clip taken from an extended interview, soprano ELIZABETH FUTRAL who is both narrator and Euridice in this adaptation of the myth shares some of her thoughts on this unique production and GORDON's music
