Orfeus, The world's first house music opera, written and produced by Nmon Ford, is a mashup of opera, house music, theater and film.

Orfeus rebirths the ancient Roman myth of Orpheus and Euridice, first introduced to the world in Ovid's epic poem, Metamorphoses. Grammy-winning baritone Nmon Ford returns to Pomona College from his recent performances of the title role in Mendelssohn's Elijah last spring to bring his stunning and new cutting-edge production.
