Orpheus in the Underworld by Jacques Offenbach (1858)
This hilarious satire on Greek myths is the most popular operetta Offenbach ever wrote. Orpheus and his wife Eurydice are at each other's throats, but after she is abducted by a disguised Pluto, Public Opinion drags Orpheus to Mount Olympus and the gods take a vacation in Hades. Full of sparkling music and dialogue, this operetta features the famous Infernal Galop, better known as the Can Can!

Witty, naughty and delightful, this operetta inspired generations of composers, including Gilbert and Sullivan.

Music director Tara Scott, stage directors David Mosey and Nina Scott-Stoddart, choreographer Chris Pelrine, costume designer Sheri McCarthy. Fully staged, performed in English and accompanied by piano.
