Why See Oprheus in the Underworld?
Emma Rice's Dazzling ENO debut
It's the age old Orpheus and Eurydice myth but as you've never seen it before! After a short yet foundation-shaking tenure as the Globe's artistic director, celebrated English theatremaker Emma Rice makes her English National Orchestra debut during a dazzling and highly theatrical revival of Orpheus In The Underworld, Jacques Offenbach's delightfully irreverent comic opera.
Starring versatile British tenor Ed Lyon and Irish soprano Claudia Boyle star as Orpheus and Eurydice, the mythical husband and wife who are torn apart through trickery. Eurydice is hoodwinked into taking the lord of the Underworld as her lover, and try as he might, Orpheus must win her back by travelling through the bacchanalian revelry of the realm of death with the help of a host of bored gods who're looking for a little entertainment...
Opening night: 5 October 2019

it takes all of ten seconds to be in its generous embrace...It calls for quicksilver, charismatic acting and singing. It gets it from this versatile cast. It's an evening that, frankly, gets everything right.
Until Apr 27, 2019
this is a worthy, weighty addition to the West End scene, anchored by two splendid performances, from the imitable David Suchet and Brendan Coyle
