Background


Following record-breaking runs at New York Theatre Workshop and Canada's Citadel Theatre, Hadestown comes to the National Theatre prior to Broadway.


Celebrated singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and director Rachel Chavkin have transformed Mitchell's acclaimed concept album into a genre-defying new musical that mixes modern American folk music with vintage New Orleans jazz to reimagine a sweeping ancient tale.


Produced in association with Mara Isaacs, Dale Franzen, Hunter Arnold and Tom Kirdahy.


Co-conceived by Ben t Matchstick.


Synopsis


In the warmth of summertime, songwriter Orpheus and his muse Eurydice are living it up and falling in love.


But as winter approaches, reality sets in: these young dreamers can't survive on songs alone.


Tempted by the promise of plenty, Eurydice is lured to the depths of industrial Hadestown.


On a quest to save her, Orpheus journeys to the underworld where their trust is put to a final test.
