For a new opera, there was a lot to dig into. The cast was outstanding, from Erin Morley pullling the character of Eurydice from inside her, to J.J. Orlinski as the spirit double of Orpheus. But the revelation to me was the focused performance of Joshua Hopkjns as the living Orpheus, both in his singing and his acting. He may just be my new favorite barihunk.
