Staged by acclaimed writer and producer Rodney Hall, and under the musical direction of John O’Donnell, this Renaissance pageant, never professionally performed in Australia, offers audiences a unique experience, featuring period instruments, masked singers and brightly-coloured sculptural costumes, while above them on triple screens a shadow play, created by two dancers, develops images from the libretto.

This is a must for all who loved L’Euridice in 2014.
