Aix en Provence
Orfeo and Majnun - Music Theatre

Orpheus loves Eurydice, whom death takes away from him. Qays loves Layla, but her father forces them apart. Orpheus will sing of his despair to the wild beasts before going to look for his wife in the Underworld, while Qays becomes “Majnun” – a man literally “crazed” with love – who sings his songs to the animals. Orfeo & Majnun springs from the encounter between an inexhaustible Western myth and a famous Arab legend. This major participative opera draws on professionals and amateurs to create a huge fresco that is also a big party. The opera, performed under the starry sky of Provence, will be preceded by an artistic parade in Aix. A chorus, soloists, orchestras and animals of all kinds will sing of their burning desire. And of a love stronger than despair.
