OrpheusFor the past two years Little Bulb Theatre have been working in collaboration with Battersea Arts Centre to create Orpheus, a 1930's Parisian retelling of the Orpheus myth, inspired by the music of Django Reinhardt. In this jazz-infused adaptation of the ancient mythological tale, they draw a parallel between the Greek figure Orpheus and the late gypsy jazz genius guitarist Django Reinhardt who kept playing even after losing the use of two fingers in his left hand. "It's a show with an epic sweep," writes Lyn Gardner in The Guardian, and by far and away the largest show to date from a company who gave us the "wildly successful" 'Operation Greenfield', about the growing pains of Christian teenagers intent on winning a village talent show. With Orpheus they've gone to a grand scale, using the setting of a magnificent 1930s Parisian-style music hall complete with an organ to explore the myth which is a story of love, of trying to put things right, and of how music can change things.
