About the Opera: In one of the most satirical and hilarious operas of all time, Orpheus must travel from the pastoral tranquility of earth through the dizzying frivolity of heaven to the bacchanalian hedonism of Hades to rescue Eurydice. Climaxing in the exuberant, reveling “Can-Can”, Orpheus in the Underworld is a comic romp of epic proportions.
Roles Available: 7 men and 7 women plus a large singing and dancing ensemble.
