Orpheus and Eurydice

Orpheus and Eurydice

Musical director | composer

Insane Root's second offering was Orpheus and Eurydice in the vaults at the Clifton suspension bridge, Bristol.

Combining storytelling, live music and singing with the amazing surroundings of the vaults, an audience capacity of 12 and a climb down a vertical ladder to reinforce your decent into the underworld, this interpretation of the Greek myth was like no other - a truly intimate, immersive and exclusive performance.

The four week run sold out and the show has been nominated for Tourism Experience of the Year at the Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards 2017/18.
