ORPHEA IN LOVE is a sweet homage to the opera and love itself while simultaneously telling its story in a mix of realism and kitsch that, in a way, feels just as close to Flashdance as to Gluck or Puccini.
ORPHEA IN LOVE is released in cinemas throughout Germany on 1 June 2023 by missingFILMs. The world premiere took place at the September Festival of the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich on 17 September 2022, it was screened at the 56th International Hof Film Festival and celebrated its international premiere at the International Film Festival Rotterdam on 28 January 2023.
The opera and the music film is the story of Orphea, a young singer working in a call center. She falls in love with a thief, who dies in a car crash. Like Orpheus, Orphea is granted to bring back her loved one from the underworld and exactly like in Gluck’s opera there is a happy ending, but the film has another pace than opera can sometimes have. Just as in the good old opera though, the music always seems to start when time stands still, and the characters turn inward to escape into their dreamworld.
With Mirjam Mesak, Guido Badalamenti, Ursula Werner, Galeano Salas, Heiko Pinkowski, Ursina Lardi, Christina Große, Serge Dorny, Tim Oliver Schultz, Christian Steiffen et al.
