Orpheus

Orpheus, © Janus Films

Jean Cocteau’s update of the Orpheus myth depicts a famous poet (Jean Marais) scorned by the Left Bank youth, and his love for both his wife Eurydice (Marie Déa) and a mysterious princess (María Casares). Seeking inspiration, the poet follows the princess from the world of the living to the land of the dead. Orpheus’s peerless visual poetry and dreamlike storytelling reveal the legendary Cocteau at the height of his powers.

Hosted by the Norton Simon Museum on Friday, February 8, 2019 at 6-7:35pm. Tickets are free with museum admission! ($15 adults, $12 seniors 62+, free for students with ID)
