Hadestown

Photo by Joan Marcus

The ancient Greek myth of Orpheus tells the tale of a man who journeys to the underworld to save his beloved, Eurydice. Anaïs Mitchell’s retelling, Hadestown—featuring music in American folk and New Orleans jazz styles—takes place in a Depression-era landscape, where the aboveground post-apocalyptic world juxtaposes the factory of Hadestown. This hot production began as a folk opera concept album, developed into an off-Broadway musical, and is stopping off in Edmonton before heading to the lights of Broadway.
