Ep. 86 Orpheus In The Underworld By Offenbach
Play • 1 hr 59 min
It’s not just modern interpreters who poke fun at distinguished personages of the mythic past.  In the mid-nineteenth century, Jacques Offenbach turned the Orpehus and Euridice story on its head in his smash-hit, Orpheus in the Underworld. This work, in addition to giving us the infamous “Can-Can,” started an international craze for toe-tapping, fun-loving operettas.  Join us for raucous fun with ancient gods and heroes.
Hosted by Pat and guest co-host Rosie Brooks.
