Orpheus in the Underworld

Orpheus in the Underworld

London Coliseum · 05 OCT - 28 NOV

Heaven’s overrated. Hell is where the party’s at.


Director Emma Rice makes her ENO debut in a glitzy production that showcases her talents for theatrical spectacle and humour.

Orpheus in the Underworld transports us to a hedonistic, party-filled Underworld.

Eurydice is fooled into taking Pluto, ruler of the Underworld, as her lover after her new marriage to Orpheus is broken through tragedy.

Orpheus must try to win his wife back to him. To achieve the impossible he needs the help of the glamorous, conceited but rather bored gods…

Age Recommendation: 11+
