A table, a chair, a grand piano and a violin - Michael Quast and Rhodri Britton need nothing more for their extraordinary "Orpheus". They shake a complete operetta, cheeky and comedic, out of their sleeves, leading us through all of Jacques Offenbach's first full-length work about Orpheus and his fun-loving wife Eurydice.

"The whole of Offenbach our of one man's throat"!
(Opernwelt)
"A small magical theatre marvel!"
(Süddeutsche Zeitung)
