“The Gulf Islands School of Performing Arts (GISPA) proudly presents Orpheus and Eurydice. Inspired by the Greek myth of the same name, Orpheus and Eurydice uphold GISPA’s signature fusion of music, dance, and theatre. Featuring unique choreography, composition and ensemble acting, Orpheus and Eurydice is not to be missed.
Apollo, the God of the Sun, and Calliope, a Muse, made the greatest musician of all time: Orpheus. Understanding that there was no use for a musician in Olympus, Orpheus went to Earth and fell in love with a wood nymph named Eurydice. Through the unluckiest of wedding days, a daring descent into the Underworld, and a heart-wrenching turn, Orpheus learns that creativity and art is difficult and easily overlooked. Together, with the help of a dead man, a three-headed dog and the Gods, Orpheus and Eurydice discover that the story of love is not always a happy one.
The talented GISPA students have collectively created, composed, choreographed and developed Orpheus and Eurydice under the direction of Bruce Smith (music), Lindsi Kruczko (dance) and Jason Donaldson (theatre). Join us as we tell a story of love, loss, creation, constellations, and tragedy.”
