The conceptual duet FYTA reworks Claudio Monteverdi's opera for the GNO Alternative Stage. The reworking follows structural narrative elements of the original text, but sets the action in the near future of a country like Greece, raising issues such as radical policies and the notion of «revolution» in late capitalism, East / West relations, the myths of Hellenism, as well as ways neo-conservative policies can appropriate the human rights discourse of LGTB communities.
L'Orfeo is one of the first operas in history and that makes it a work highly flexible in adaptations, as it was written before the conventions of opera directing had been established. From this perspective, it is a work suitable for queerization by the aesthetics and communication codes of another era. In the reworking of ORFEAS 2020 by FYTA, baroque sound is mixed with retro-futuristic synthesizers of the '80s, operatic utterance with the self-referential and meta-dramatic approach of performance art, living theatrical space with a post-internet multimedia digital grid, and exuberant visions of myth's divine characters with contemporary deities of queer DIY punk fashion.
