by Anaïs Mitchell

Following two intertwining love stories – that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and of immortal King Hades and Lady Persephone – Hadestown invites audiences on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back. Inspired by traditions of classic American folk music and vintage New Orleans jazz, Mitchell’s beguiling sung-through musical pits industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear against love.   Reading edition
