Little Bulb, an award-winning company of actor-musicians which is based in the South East and tours nationwide, has revived their version of Orpheus, and the result is breathtaking.
If Orpheus was simply a re-telling of this myth, it would be over very quickly. Instead, music features heavily in the show – some of which are original compositions and some are well-known pieces of classical music.
May the gods spare us from student visions of dystopian futures. We are beyond a new ice age, in the fifth millennium when the British isles have drifted Norsewards and the people speak cod Icelandic.
