Orpheus in the Underworld
Time Out says
Comic opera master Offenbach's playful take on the Orpheus myth is set in the Underworld, where an obnoxious array of gods party in style. Perfect fodder for director Emma Rice, who's made her name with shows that are packed full of fun and whimsy. 'Orpheus in the Underworld' is also famous for originating the 'Can-can' dance, so expect to see a high-kicking chorus line or two. Ed Lyon and Mary Bevan play the central romantic pairing.
