Eurydice, a Descent into Infinity

Eurydice, een afdaling in oneindigheid
Swiss Premiere
Celine Daemen
Operatic hike
2022, 25'
No Dialogue
Sterre Konijn
Like Orpheus, the spectator is invited to follow Eurydice on her endless descent into the Underworld. This opera, based on an original libretto, will transport you to a poetic space with a fierce pointillist beauty, between the material and the eternal.


For your comfort during the experience, we recommend that you do not wear heels.

A virtual reality opera, Eurydice is a resolutely physical work that is simultaneously intangible and immaterial. Like Orpheus, the spectator is invited to follow Eurydice on her endless descent into the Underworld. On ramps and steep paths, to the edge of vertiginous precipices, with the treasured soul ever close yet doomed to remain out of reach, this work of a fierce pointillist beauty will transport you to a space filled with poetry, to the bewitching strains of an original libretto, caught between the material and the eternal.
