Orfeo ed Euridice

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ambitious "Festival Internacional
de Música Castell de Peralada", the Catalan theater collective La Fura dels
Baus and its director Carlus Padrissa have staged Gluck's "Orfeo ed
Euridice" with three splendid soloists in a production that confirms the
Fura's creativity. The most striking aspect of the production is the
participation of the orchestral ensemble in the action. Padrissa also makes
abundant stage use of the chorus, who depict souls or demons. With its
stunning effects, expert lighting and video projections, the production
grabs the viewer from the very start.
