METAMORPHOSES: ORPHEUS IN OEDIPUS
With the Harvard Glee Club
The Orphic Moment by Matthew Aucoin (Harvard '12) takes a freeze-frame look at the moment before Orpheus turns fatefully to look at Eurydice. In Harbison's Symphony No. 5, the Orpheus myth is reflected in vivid poetry of Milosz, Glück, and Rilke, the eponymous hero's lute represented by an electric guitar. With a libretto by Cocteau based on Sophocles, Stravinsky's monumental and chilling opera-oratorio Oedipus Rex is a throbbing musical engine of fate.
