About This Show

She cared for him, she understood him… And now she’s gone. Orpheus is alone, playing tunes in his record shop. After an old friend visits, strange things start to happen and music, myth and reality collides. Together with Orpheus we go in search of something ancient, contemporary and hopeful.

Acclaimed rapper and playwright Testament (Black Men Walking, The Beatboxer, WOKE) takes inspiration from the classical Greek myth of Orpheus, in a show that fuses spoken word and beatboxing with the music of the Orchestra of Opera North. Orpheus in the Record Shop is part of Connecting Voices, a collaboration between Leeds Playhouse and Opera North bringing together a collection of new and classic work celebrating the power of the human voice.
