With the opera l’Orfeo by Claudio Monteverdi as starting point, director Miranda Lakerveld, choreographer Mallika Sarabai and composer Ned McGowan created a unique new opera where European and Indian musicians, singers and dancers collaborated in an artistic exchange. The music by Monteverdi was performed by an ensemble of baroque specialists and Indian singers and dancers. Composer Ned McGowan and director Miranda Lakerveld made an adaption of the myth where the classic interpretation by Monteverdi exists side by side with interpretations according to the Indian Raga tradition and folk music from the region Gujurat.
