NOVEMBER TOPIC:

Philip Glass'

ORPHÉE
With Rob Ainsley and the
Portland Opera Studio Artists

 

On November 6, bring your lunch and join Portland Opera Assistant Conductor and Chorus Master Robert Ainsley and the talented Studio Artists, for insights and musical highlights from Philip Glass’ acclaimed Orphée.

The Portland Opera / West Coast premiere of American composer Philip Glass’ 1993 opera Orphée is a production The New York Times called “stunning.” Based on French filmmaker Jean Cocteau’s fascinating 1949 retelling of the Orpheus myth, it draws its libretto almost intact from the screenplay.

Orphée opens Nov. 6 at Keller Auditorium with additional performances Nov 8m, 12, 14. For more information, visit www.portlandopera.org.
