Cult of Orpheus is an independent performance troupe building an original body of new, lyrical work — art-song, opera, and chamber music. Founded in Portland in 2013, the group is led by the vision of composer/librettist Christopher Corbell, "one of Oregon's most vital creative artists" (Oregon ArtsWatch). The group collaborates with local artists and poets, and also explores poetic and mystic writings from the past, creating fresh, inspired, beautiful works based on contemporary and overlooked utterances.

These representative press accolades highlight the quality of this troupe's work:

"Filled with delicate instrumentation and divine harmonies, the album is fervently beautiful." — Shannon Gormley, Willamette Week, on the debut Cult of Orpheus CD

"If you’re looking for a theatrical alternative to the staged equivalent of a sugary, mass-produced holiday cookie, you probably can’t do better than Viva’s Holiday..." — Megan Burbank, Portland Mercury, on the premiere of Viva's Holiday: An Opera in One Act
