Orpheus in the Underworld http://krwg.org en DALO brings “Orpheus in the Underworld” to Las Cruces http://krwg.org/post/dalo-brings-orpheus-underworld-las-cruces <p>The heartrending ancient myth of Orpheus and Eurydice hardly seems like material for a scathing satirical opera, but that’s exactly what the 19<sup>th</sup>-century French composer Jacques Offenbach turned it into in his “Orpheus in the Underworld.” This week, the Dona Lyric Opera performs the opera, and Artistic Director John Carlo Pierce came by to talk with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin about the myth, the parody, its most famous can-can music, and more. Recorded on March 13, 2014.</p><p></p> Thu, 13 Mar 2014 23:20:54 +0000 Leora Zeitlin 61898 at http://krwg.org DALO brings “Orpheus in the Underworld” to Las Cruces
