Orphée-mania, more from Portland

The Portland Opera site has interviews with the Director Sam Helfrich, La Princesse Lisa Saffer, and assistant conductor Rob Ainsley who demonstrates parts of the score on piano.  This is the same production which bowed at Glimmerglass Opera 2 years ago. To hear the participants glow like this gives one the impression that this is something special. Not only that but that Portland should be very proud for producing the West Coast premiere of the piece and the World Premiere recording which was covered by the press here.And here is the glowing review from the Oregonian "Portland Opera takes us to hell and back".
