Jacques Offenbach: Orpheus in the Underworld

Venue: Fairchild Theatre, MSU Auditorium

Worthington Family Foundation Opera Theatre Season

Stage director: Melanie Helton
Conductor: Steven Mosteller

Sung in English, this opera is a lampoon of the ancient legend of Orpheus and Eurydice. In this version, Orpheus is not the son of Apollo but rather a rustic violin teacher. See and hear this comedic look at the Orpheus legend that goes from Earth to Olympus to the best party of all in Hades!
