Directed by Tiffany Blake; Conducted by Wes Kenney
October 25, 26, 27, 7:30 p.m., matinee on October 28, 2 p.m.

Orpheus, musician and poet of mythological legend, was said to have the ability to charm all living things with his voice. When his beloved Eurydice dies of a fatal snake bite, Orpheus descends into the darkness of the Underworld to ask for her return, hoping his voice can soften the hearts of the gods. His request is granted, but Orpheus must walk in front of Eurydice and not look back until they reach the upper world. Will he overcome the temptation? The popular and influential opera was first performed in 1762 in Vienna. CSU System Passport eligible.
