Orpheus in the Underworld
Emma Rice makes her ENO debut in a glitzy production that showcases her talents for theatrical spectacle and humour. Orpheus in the Underworld is presented by ENO in association with Wise Children as part of the ENO's Autumn 2019 Orpheus series.
Orpheus in the Underworld transports us to a hedonistic, party-filled Underworld. Eurydice is fooled into taking Pluto, ruler of the Underworld, as her lover after her new marriage to Orpheus is broken through tragedy. Orpheus must try to win his wife back to him. To achieve the impossible he needs the help of the glamorous, conceited but rather bored gods…
