Description

Greeks, shepherds, betrayal, Gods disguising as bugs, the Can Can: who could orchestrate such a combination other than Jaques Offenbach? See this combination for yourself with Donald Pippin’s English setting of Orpheus in the Underworld.

Known for being more musically audacious than Offenbach’s earlier pieces, Orpheus takes us on a journey from the heights of Mt. Olympus to the depths of Hades’ lair. Orpheus takes place mostly in the glittering ballroom of the underworld, frequented by the Olympian gods there on vacation, eager for a change of pace and ready to let their hair down. The guests also include two well-known mortals, Orpheus and Eurydice, and an indomitable lady who calls herself Public Opinion. Don’t miss out on the fun, but behave yourself—the Gods will be watching!

Starring Pocket Opera favorites Megan Stetson, Sonia Gariaeff, Chelsea Hollow, and introducing Maya Kherani as Eurydice.
