The Veil of Orpheus







Works of Matthias Pintscher, Pierre Henry, Matthew Aucoin, Harrison Birtwistle

A rare showing of Cy Twombly’s monumental painting, The Treatise on the Veil, is the occasion for this unique musical event at the Menil. Da Camera introduces America’s rising star composer Matthew Aucoin to Houston with an intimate preview of his opera, Eurydice, prior to its premiere at the Metropolitan Opera in 2019-20, and welcomes countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo in his Da Camera debut.
