Orfeo

Orfeo by Jose Limon, underwritten through the partial support of the National Endowment for the Arts. One of the Jose Limon’s final works, Orfeo follows the travails of the mythological poet and musician as he descends into the underworld to bring his beloved Eurydice back to earth. Set to Beethoven’s Fourth Concerto, this 18-minute piece is a quintet for one man and four women. Wylliams/Henry is fortunate to stage this remarkable piece on the 35th anniversary of its world premier during the Company’s 2007 season.
