Wednesday, September 25, 2019

6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join the second Film Series screening in partnership with the Moores School of Music and Moores Opera Center to screen Jean Cocteau’s “Orpheus”. Cocteau’s 1950’s update of the Orpheus myth depicts a famous poet scorned by the Left Bank youth, and his love for both his wife, Eurydice, and a mysterious princess. Seeking inspiration, the poet follows the princess from the world of the living to the land of the dead, through Cocteau’s famous mirrored portal. See a trailer of the film.
