In this powerful adaptation of the Greek myth, the demi-god Orpheus is devastated by the death of his beloved Eurydice, and undertakes an epic journey through literal hell to bring her back to life. Much loved for its emotional, elegant score, the Parisian version of the opera comes to the Chicago stage via the creative vision of famed director-choreographer John Neumeier of the Hamburg Ballet, who also designed the sets, costumes and lighting.
