Orpheus's young wife Eurydice has died, but he's not willing to let her go. Orpheus pleads with Cupid, the God of Love, to bring her back. Instead, Cupid allows Orpheus to go into the underworld to find Eurydice and bring her back with him, but first he must get past Pluto and his furies. Director, choreographer and designer John Neumeier creates a new production that showcases dancers of the Joffrey Ballet.
