A Song for Eurydice (2010)
Composer - Garth McConaghie
Director - Stuart Harvey
Choreographer - Kate Sagovsky
Two young lovers. A wedding. A tragedy. Two young lovers, never to be parted?
Orpheus loves Eurydice, Eurydice loves Orpheus.
Orpheus loses Eurydice on what should be the happiest day of his life. He faces a journey to the depths of the underworld to throw himself at the mercy of Hades armed with only his love and his music.
Set in culturally expansive 1950s Paris, A Song for Eurydice is a musical exploration of the dangers of infatuation and the grieving for the loss of love.
Taking influence from the classical myth this project will explore themes such as love, death, expression and the great and universal power of art.This production will create a ensemble piece that brings this most tragic of love stories in an exciting and challenging new piece by YMT.
A company of strong all round performers aged 16 and above, with a particular interest in using their instrumental skills as actors or their experience in contemporary dance will bring this beautiful Greek love story to life, set in a vibrant and exciting time for art, music and culture.
