Orpheus in the Underworld
July 26 - July 29, 2012
While the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice may be familiar to many of you, Offenbach's operetta takes the tragic tale and spins it into an uproarious farce. In his version, Orpheus and Eurydice grow tired of marriage and Eurydice welcomes her visit to Hell. Even the gods on Mount Olympus stage a revolt to join the party! Only Public Opinion can convince Orpheus to step in and try to save his wife from the best party in all three worlds.
