Blurring the lines of opera, house music and theatre, Nmon Ford’s Orfeus makes its World Premiere at the Young Vic, directed by Charles Randolph-Wright (Motown: The Musical).
Set in the near future, this unique production blends music genres and performance into a timeless version of Ovid’s legend. Orfeus confronts his true nature to save the beautiful poet Euridice from his father Pluto, the fascist ruler of a dystopian empire. Award-winning baritone Nmon Ford plays Orfeus.
Words, Music and Libretto Nmon Ford
