Hadestown National Theatre, London 2 Nov 2018 - 26 Jan 2019
Anais Mitchell’s folk opera ‘Hadestown’ a retelling of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, has been transformed into a theatrical production and is currently in preview at the National Theatre.
I saw it last night and absolutely loved it! Fusing folk music with New Orleans jazz, the performance was just stunning. The staging is inventive and I was thoroughly absorbed by it. So much so that I’d love to see it again. Press night is 13 Nov and thereafter it runs until 26 Jan. It will be moving to New York’s Broadway after its National run.
