“Behind the scenes of Orfeo with a young dancer”
The Royal Opera and Roundhouse teamed up for an experimental production of Monteverdi’s Orfeo, considered to be the “first great opera.”
The production included a group of young dancers brought in via East London Dance. Unlike productions of The Nutcracker, where the even younger dancers typically decorate specific scenes, these dancers were an integral part of the show.
