Orpheus in the Underworld

Poster for Orpheus in the Underworld.

Music by Jacques Offenbach, French Libretto by Hector Cremieux and Ludovic Halevy, English Adaptation by Rebecca Renfro Grimes
In Collaboration with ISU Music’s Opera Studio

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 delectable comic romp.
