In 2018 many adults and children alike have trodden the mosaics of the Opéra Comique for the first time during “Mon premier festival d’opéra” (My first opera festival). In 2019 this event is back with three productions intended for families as an introduction to the delights of music and singing. The Opéra Comique is doing its best to make these moments an unforgettable experience and offers a playful introduction before performances and the opportunity to meet the artists.

Orpheus lost his wife Eurydice on the day of their wedding. Orpheus courageously descends to the Underworld to retrieve her, confronting monsters and furies to find her. Will he succeed in leading her back from the dead without turning to look at her as promised to the gods?

The history of Western opera is based on the myth of Orpheus because it shows that music and singing are stronger than death, stronger than the Underworld. Visual artist Valérie Lesort offers a magical puppet version of Orpheus’ journey in the Underworld. A visual production designed to introduce children to opera voices.
