ORPHÉE ET EURIDYCE

In 2019, São Castro and António M Cabrita are invited by Théâtre de la Mezzanine ( France ) to take over the choreographic direction of the opera Orphée et Euridyce, staged by Denis Chabroullet. In his approach, the director takes advantage of the myth of Orpheus, with the tender and sulfurous look that characterizes his theatrical universe: exploration of materials, energy of bodies, infernal machines, his tools are sharpened to accompany the journey of Orpheus through the underworld.

A theater of music and imagination, with its appearances and disappearances, pulleys and traps, where the confusion of feelings makes us oscillate between the intoxication of a mad love that hesitates to come true, and the sulfurous power of darkness that infuses every day in the interstices of our real world.
