Orpheus in the UnderworldRoyal College of Music, Britten Theatre, SW7 2BS, [Venue Details]
Mistaken identities, quick-witted satire – and of course, the infamous can-can! Embark on a farcical journey to hell and back with Offenbach's colourful comic opera.
Eurydice is led into the depths of purgatory by her lover, revealed to be Pluton, ruler of the underworld in disguise. Orpheus rejoices at the disappearance of his estranged wife, but is reprimanded by Public Opinion personified – and so begins his riotous journey to bring her back from the underworld.
With a racy translation by renowned director Jeremy Sams, Orpheus in the Underworld promises to be a hilarious night of entertainment.
