The Masques of Orpheus


The Masques of Orpheus: An original series of music and drama, with dance and poetry, featuring Opera Roanoke's artistic staff and Young Apprentice Artists.

Named after the original singer-songwriter-composer, the Greek bard Orpheus is considered the ancient founder of music itself. The Masque was an early form of "festive entertainment" featuring "singers and dancers, actors, poets and players." Opera Roanoke's Masques of Orpheus is a new series of innovative programs of operatic entertainment featuring a variety of arias, duets, scenes, poetry, theatre & dance.
