What's Hadestown about?

After success on Broadway, the musical Hadestown is finally coming to London!

Hadestown is based on the famous Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, and set in a post-apocalyptic world.

Orpheus is an exceptionally talented young musician and when he meets Eurydice, a young woman looking for a wonderful life, it's love at first sight. The two young people quickly make future plans.

But when the master of Hadestown, the thriving underground city, offers Eurydice a job, she accepts and leaves the outside world. Devastated, Orpheus goes to Hadestown to try and bring back the woman he loves.

Hadestown was created in 2006 in La Barre, Vermont. Ten years later, the show moved to off-Broadway and then to Canada and London. It finally came to Broadway in 2019 where it won eight Tony Awards, including best musical and best score.

This musical has had a strong fan base since its off-Broadway production at New York Theatre Workshop, where it holds the record for the longest-running show.

Created by singer Anaïs Mitchell, Hadestown was one of only four musicals entirely written by a women (music, lyrics and book).

With its moving story, unexpected setting and folk and blues music, Hadestown is a musical which both the public and American critics have fallen in love with. A must-see phenomenon!
