New Orleans Opéra Nouvelle: Orpheus in the Underworld
November 7, 2017 at 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
The Opéra Nouvelle: Orpheus in the Underworld series will take place on November 7, 2017, at The Caribbean Room at 6:30.
Our theme will be operatic tales of Orpheus from the 17th Century to present day. The original storyline began with the heroic demigod of music, Orpheus, who rescued his beloved Eurydice from the underworld realm of Pluto. But our production of Orpheus in the Underworld gives it a different spin! The Eurydice of Jacques Offenbach does not think it is such a bad thing to be taken to the Underworld by Pluto. In fact, she is rather flattered!
