Event Details

Iowa State University’s Department of Music and Theatre present selections of Orpheus in the Underworld by Jacques Offenbach. In one of the most satirical and hilarious operas of all time, Orpheus must travel from the pastoral tranquility of earth through the dizzying frivolity of heaven to the bacchanalian hedonism of Hades to rescue Eurydice. Climaxing in the exuberant, reveling “Can-Can”, Orpheus in the Underworld is a delectable comic romp.

Doors open at 6:15 pm.

The performance begins at 7:00 pm.
