We can finally reveal a project we’ve been working on for a while: a Spymonkey opera! Jacques Offenbach’s ‘Orpheus in der Underwelt’, opens January 21 2023 at the Volksoper Vienna, part of incoming artistic director Lotte de Beer’s inaugural season.
Directed by Toby Park & Aitor Basauri, design by Julian Crouch, choreography by Gail Skrela. We are rehearsing at the moment with a crack team of brilliant idiots who we’ve gathered from all over the world, as well as the brilliant ensemble from one the world’s great operetta stages.
Helping us to make funny opera will be Marcel Mohab, Michal Chovanec, Ondra Klic, Caroline Richards, Madeleine Rowe, Georg Wacks, Sebastian Matt, Susanna Gschwendtner, Ruth Brauer-Kvam, and soloists from the VOP ensemble including Marco di Sapia, Timothy Fallon, Hedwig Ritter, Juliette Khalil, Ursula Pfitzner and Jakob Semotan.
