Ricky Ian Gordon’s soaring score and intimate poetry bring us a very modern telling of this ancient story; winner of the 2006 OBIE Award, this is Orpheus for the 21st century.  UrbanArias is proud to present the trio who debuted the opera at Lincoln Center, and who  are featured on the Ghostlight recording.
