In his famous "opera bouffe" Orpheus in the Underworld, Jacques Offenbach explores in a comic way the tragic story of lovers Orpheus and Eurydice. It is staged here by Laurent Pelly at the Opéra National de Lyon and performed by Natalie Dessay (Eurydice) and Yann Beuron (Orpheus). In this funny version of Orphée's ancient myth, his highly famous complaint "I have lost my Eurydice" seems to be a victory roar ... In this opera composed after a libretto by Hector Crémieux and Ludovic Halévy, premiered in 1858 at the Théâtre des Bouffes-Parisiens, Offenbach and the librettists give characters back to life in a highly humorous way. It is the story of a domestic squabble between bitter lovers Eurydice and Orpheus: Eurydice is fed up with Orpheus musical talent, but they cannot break off. So that Orpheus decides to ask shepherd Aristaeus --€who is Pluto himself disguised€-- for his help. He wants him to seduce Eurydice to lead her die in a trap. Eurydice dies and goes to the Underworld. Everything is for the best in the best of all possible worlds, but Public Opinion comes to moralize Orpheus: he must save his honour in saving Eurydice ... The fanciful staging perfectly highlights Offenbach's Genius and humor: indeed he was the composer who created the genre of French "opéra bouffe". Natalie Dessay and Yann Beuron remarkably perform this opera with voices full of expressiveness and a beautiful stage presence. They really transform this domestic squabble into a funny story

"Il y a dix-neuf ans que le roi Tartaglia est parti à la guerre, dix-huit ans que sa femme, Ninetta, a été enterrée vivante par la terrible reine-mère Tartaglione dans un trou sous l'évier des cuisines du palais. Cette dernière avait ordonné à son Premier ministre Pantalon de supprimer les enfants du couple royal, mais Pantalon n'a pas pu et les jumeaux ont été recueillis par un couple de charcutiers, Truffaldin et Smeraldine. Pourtant leur père adoptif, lassé de les avoir à charge, les chasse tandis que leur vrai père, le roi, regagne son royaume. Quant à leur mère, elle a pu survivre en secret avec l'aide d'un mystérieux oiseau vert... Après bien des sortilèges, des maléfices et des métamorphoses, l'Oiseau vert dénoue toutes les intrigues et chacun redevient ce qu'il est censé être."--L'avant-scène théâtre

"Pez and Eck are on the hunt for the perfect society in "a city where free men might live like birds". But when they start building the bird city for real, Pez starts to have ambitions - which seem not a million miles away from dictatorship. As the fantasy utopia threatens to turn into a tyranny the birds start to rebel. Sean O'Brien's new verse brings Aristophanes' devastatingly ironic comment on human ambition bang up-to-date and is brimful of jokes ancient and modern."--BOOK JACKET
