Silent Opera brings audiences closer to the action than ever before. This intense experience brings together theatre, technology and classical music. Audiences are provided with wireless headphones, which deliver an all encompassing sound world directly into their head: bringing together live singing and select instrumentalists, mixed with a pre-recorded full orchestra, revealing every breath, nuance and emotion of the operatic narrative. It then allows audiences to move freely through the performance space, following the story and creating their own personal theatre, by choosing how to experience Monteverdi's masterpiece. The story of 'Orfeo begins with the tragic and untimely death of Eurydice, Orfeo' future wife. He travels to the underworld to retrieve his beloved where he entrances the gods of the underworld, who give him the chance to have her return with him to earth. There is one condition, however, he must trust that she is following him, and not look back 'if he does a single glance will condemn him to eternal loss. Doubtful of this chance, he looks back, trapping Eurydice in the Underworld forever.
