Stage Coach and The A.C.T. Master of Fine Arts Program present: Black Orpheus: Una Historia de Amor. Adapted and directed by Stephen Buescher.
After his beloved Eurydice is stolen by Death, guitar-toting poet Orpheus ventures into the underworld in an attempt to retrieve her. Set in a mythical barrio during Carnival, Black Orpheus: Una Historia de Amor is inspired by the play Orfeu da Conceição by Brazilian poet and playwright, Vinicius de Moraes.
This Stage Coach production layers Afro-Latino rhythms with visual storytelling to bring this vivid story to life. As they tour communities of the Bay Area, A.C.T.’s M.F.A. Program actors create a classic love story with a Carnival heartbeat.
