Production Description

"Eurydice" is ultimately about the painful choice that comes with the passing of joys and pleasures: whether to remember, in sadness, or to forget, and achieve a calm but emptier equilibrium. Artistic Director states: "Under the affectionate tutelage of her father, Eurydice regains her memories of earthly love. But when Orpheus channels down to retrieve her, after firing off a barrage of love letters to her from above, she has to choose between her husband and her father. Both alternatives involve loss, of course. So does life, often enough. But Ms. Ruhl’s magical play about the joys and trials of living and dying invites the happiest kind of commemoration. Like all fine poems, songs and paintings, it’s a love letter to the world that deserves to be remembered for a good long time. -- Charles Isherwood, NY Times."
