About the Event
Welcome to Hadestown, where a song can change your destiny. This acclaimed new musical by acclaimed singer‐songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and innovative director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) is a love story for today… and always.
Hadestown weaves together two mythical stories — that of the young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — and invites us on a hellish journey to the underworld and back. Mitchell's haunting melodies and Chavkin's poetic imagination pit industry against nature, doubt against faith and fear against love. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers and singers, Hadestown is a poignant and hopeful theatrical experience that will captivate you and never let go.
