“Operation Orpheus“ is an anachronistic aria. Twisting through the centuries, the drama – Orpheus and Eurydice – dissects the organs of cultural memory and operatic flesh, undermining and violating contemporary taste. In what is tantamount to a ritual, Jule Flierl samples conventions of the body and strips them of their authority, creating a vocal dance that embodies an ahistorical character: classical song and the gestural language of romantic ballet flow simultaneously out of one body.
