Summary

Rapper Andy Brooks - also known as Testament - presents this modern-day interpretation of the Orpheus legend, fusing spoken word and beatboxing with a cinematic score performed by members of the Orchestra and Chorus of Opera North. Orpheus is alone, playing tunes in his record shop, when an enigmatic stranger sets his fragile reality into a spin, forcing him to confront some painful truths from the past. Testament takes the lead role, with support from mezzo Helen Evora and Everal A Walsh.
