In the classic myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, as it has come down to us from Virgil’s Georgics and Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Orpheus travels to the underworld to bring back his new bride Eurydice who has died tragically on her wedding day. There’s only one condition: he must walk in front of her and not look back until they reach the surface. Just as he is about to reach daylight, he turns to gaze upon his love’s face, and she is snatched away forever. The story has been explored in poetry, painting, sculpture, ballet and opera for over 2000 years.

Ruhl’s Eurydice is a luminous reimagining of this myth through the eyes of Eurydice. We tumble with Eurydice like Alice down into an eerie Wonderland underworld where she is reunited with her father. He must teach her language, since she has been stripped of all her memories. Ruhl’s Hades is also populated with a fantastical chorus of Stones and a tricycle-riding Lord of the Underworld.
