From doing Anne Frank in a parking garage to Greek mythology in a swimming pool, it's too bad that this site-specific Long Beach Opera production of Orpheus and Euridice by RIcky Ian Gordon is having such a short run (last night through tomorrow night) because this looks simply fantastic and Gordon's music has been praised by the New York Times and others (we concur, his music is hot). Tickets are still available for tonight's and tomorrow's performances taking place at the Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool. Hear and see a time lapse video of last night's performance below.
