Even far up in the gallery would be worth it–Morris and team have used the height of the Met so that you will be less far away than usual, at least!
Here’s my Newsday review.
To readers who have come via my friend Terry Teachout, welcome! As I write on dance and don’t know diddly about opera, I relied on him to help me figure out how to prepare for this review. He was a wonderful, gracious guide.
Orfeo is an absorbing visual experience–but I never got close enough to it, emotionally speaking, to feel anything but admiration.
I felt much the same in the midst of it. But the production settled powerfully in me afterwards. Hence, the more positive review.
