Orpheus in the Underworld  Main House

Argosy Musical Theatre

26 April - 1 May at 7.30pm

Tickets:  Tue-Thu: 9; Fri-Sat: 10

Offenbach's classic opera performed by the talented company of Argosy Musical Theatre.

The first of Jacques Offenbach's outrageously funny 'send-ups' of Greek mythology, this is an unashamedly Gallic version of the classic legend of Orpheus's pursuit of his wife Eurydice, who is carried off to Hades by Pluto - much to the annoyance of Jupiter. A highly disrespectful romp, it involves nymphs, shepherds, gods and goddesses, with the fun reaching its climax in the riotous revels of the celebrated "Can-Can". A lively and highly enjoyable show for both performers and audience, with many world-famous tunes.
