Pamela Schermann, international opera and theatre director has teamed up with the young and diverse theatre company, Time Zone Theatre, to produce Christoph Willibald Gluck’s most popular and reformed opera, Orpheus and Eurydice at the Rose Theatre, which also celebrates Gluck’s 300th anniversary.
The dark excavated area of the Rose is taken fully advantage of by the singers, Green and Mimi Doulton (Eurydice) who although positioned far from the audience, and the quartet close by, gives vocal clarity and sharpness which resonate from both directions. Doulton has a robust voice and when confused of her husband’s actions sings unrelentlessly and provides a heart-wrenching feast. The soprano Olivia Doutney despite having a small choir part proved to have potential as well.
