Orage - repeating event question

Not really.

Orage only sends one alarm. It does not keep the alarm active.

For example if your birthday is March 30 and you define alarm 1 day 
before the event, you will get alarm on 29 March. And if your event is 
yearly repeating (like it should be for birthdays) you will get next 
alarm again next year 29 March. If you use Orage default visible alarm, 
you can activate another reminder form that alarm window when you get 
the reminder, but that is just another reminder. .

There is no way of clearing previous occerrencies. (You could change the 
start time, which would basically do that.)
