The most haunting love story ever told

Prepare to be transported to 1930s Paris where legendary musician, Django Reinhardt, has been cast as the lead in a new production of Orpheus.

Your host for the evening is the charismatic songstress Yvette Pépin. With her troupe of operatic players she will perform the thrilling tale of Orpheus’s ill-fated descent into the underworld to reclaim his lost love, Eurydice.

Set to a live score of hot club jazz, opera and French chanson, Orpheus is a musical re-imagining of the epic Greek myth.

"Boundlessly enthusiastic, insanely optimistic and inexpressibly charming" - The Guardian on Little Bulb Theatre.
