Behind the Scenes with Ozwald Boateng

By Ezequiel 26 Feb 2020

Sneak peek at the stunning costumes of Orfeus: A House Music Opera


Earlier this month we were delighted to announce that acclaimed fashion designer Ozwald Boateng will be designing costumes for the World Premiere of Orfeus: A House Music Opera, which opens at the Young Vic this Spring. We visited Ozwald's studio to give you an exclusive first look at his ideas and inspirations for the costumes of the show... 


Blurring the lines of opera, house music and theatre, Nmon Ford’s Orfeus makes its World Premiere at the Young Vic this April, directed by Charles Randolph-Wright (Motown: The Musical).

Set in the near future, this unique production blends music genres and performance into a timeless version of Ovid’s legend. Orfeus confronts his true nature to save the beautiful poet Euridice from his father Pluto, the fascist ruler of a dystopian empire.

Cast includes Nmon Ford as Orfeus with Gianni ArancioBernadette BanguraFranc D’AmbrosioGrace FarrellFiona FinsburyNathan KileyFabiane Leame and Shaq Taylor.

11 Apr - 30 May 2020 | Tickets from £10
