FRINGE: University of St Andrews Opera Society presents 'Orphée & Euridice'

October 16, 2019

7pm, The Byre Theatre - Main Auditorium

£10 (£8)

Approx. running time: 120mins 

The classic tale of the trials of love: Orpheus (Orphée) has the chance to bring the beloved Euridice back from the dead. The catch? Orphée cannot look at her once at the risk of losing her forever; can she manage it?


The University of St Andrews Opera Society presents a new modern twist on Gluck's version of this tragic story, with a brand new translation of the 1774 French libretto by students from the university's French department. Come and witness the power of love, and the lengths we will go to for it!


Additional performances on 15th and 16th October.

"Clara Schumann was the finest pianist of her time - and a dutiful wife

who rarely opened her mouth. Perfect material for a novel."

With "humanism, generosity, and a passionate, beating heart" (The Times), Scottish Writer, Janice Galloway's novel ‘Clara’ reignites, from between the lines of history, the great love of Robert and Clara Schumann. In her lifetime, Clara was a celebrated concert pianist and composer, editor and teacher, friend of Brahms -- as well as mother of the eight Schumann children and caretaker of her husband through a series of crippling mental illnesses. In this special live presentation of her novel, Janice Galloway will read extracts from the book, interspersed with performances of the Schumanns' music given by staff and students from the University of St Andrews Music Centre: pianist Ancuta Nite, baritone Teddy Day and mezzo-soprano Katherine Gunya
