A white bearded man holds another blond person in his arms, their head on his shoulder. He looks grimly over their head, on which his hand rests. In the background a blurred desert landscape with a blue sky.

Mankind has turned the earth into a realm of the dead. Hot winds rage across barren landscapes. The soils are barren. The forces of nature are more untamable than ever. All glory, all majesty is gone. In this world without hope, Orpheus sets out to find his beloved Eurydice. She leads him into a realm of the dead that is eerie, mysterious and yet of unexpected beauty. In this world of unfulfilled promises he finds his beloved and yet he will not succeed in returning her to this world.

The "MusikFilmTheater ORFEO!" tells the story of baroque fantasies of mastering nature against the backdrop of the ongoing climate crisis. The material of Monteverdi's masterpiece "L'Orfeo" becomes the starting point for renegotiating the relationship between renunciation and progress in the interplay of film and music theatre. Together with the string orchestra Ensemble Resonanz and a banda of wind musicians and percussionists, the composers Rainer and Karsten Süßmilch transfer Monteverdi's "L'Orfeo" like a voice from the past into a theatrical present.
