Notes and Editorial Reviews

Euridice and Charon's puppets, a new opera based around the Orpheus and Eurydice myth, moves the legend into the present day: Sofia, a young and well-known opera singer, has her life turned upside-down on learning that she has an incurable disease. Her partner, Oscar, a musicologist and conductor, refuses to accept the approaching ill-fortune. The work interlaces two genres as distinct as opera and puppetry, allowing classical and popular music to engage with each other in lively a dialogue in an opera which is approachable for a young audience.` Euridice and Charon's puppets, a new opera based around the Orpheus and Eurydice myth, moves the legend into the present day: Sofia, a young and well-known opera singer, has her life turned upside-down on learning that she has an incurable disease.
