Orfeo shortlisted for RPS Award 2023
We’re thrilled that our 2022 production Orfeo with our partners The English Concert has been shortlisted for the RPS Opera & Music Theatre Award. We are honoured to feature alongside our friends at English National Opera, Scottish Opera, & Theatre of Sound and Opera Ventures.
"We are so delighted that the Royal Philharmonic Society has shortlisted Orfeo for the Opera and Music Theatre Award. It's a wonderful acknowledgement of the work of the creative team, the company, and our partners The English Concert who were such an integral part of this extraordinary production."
Nicola Creed, Executive Director of Garsington Opera
The Royal Philharmonic Society Awards celebrate the greatest achievements in classical music in the UK over the past year and are voted on by a panel of experts. We have featured in the shortlist three times since 2017, for our 2016 production of Idomeneo, our 2019 production of The Turn of the Screw for which we received the 2020 award, and now for Orfeo (2022).
"Orfeo was not only a sublime experience for the audience, but also a wonderful synergy of a brilliant creative team, cast and orchestra, and we are very grateful to the RPS for recognising Garsington Opera's artistic achievement with this nomination."
Douglas Boyd, Artistic Director of Garsington Opera
Thank you to the Royal Philharmonic Society for your support and recognition of the work of UK opera industry and congratulations to everyone involved both on stage and behind the scenes.
"Sometimes everything comes right in the theatre. You know it when it happens, and Garsington Opera's Orfeo is such a moment" Martin Kettle, The Guardian, ★★★★★
The full production of Orfeo is still available to watch on OperaVision for free until 20 April 2023.
