Faces of Eurydice is an Electro-Acoustic-Operatic Dance-Theater retelling of the myth of Orpheus composed by Hope Littwin for three singers, two dancers, one actor, cello, piano, guitar and electronics. In this visceral adaptation, the often overlooked perspective of Eurydice, Orpheus’s legendary lover, comes alive.
The opera was commissioned and presented by CUBE Ensemble. It premiered on March 12th of 2015 and ran for two weeks at The Pentagon Theater in Chicago, Illinois.
