Presented by University of Houston Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts (CotA) (formerly UH ARTS) at University of Houston - Moores Opera House, Houston TX

Oct 18 - 21 2019
Orpheus in the Underworld

Music by Jacques Offenbach; Original French libretto by Ludovic Halévy and Hector Crémieux ; English version by Buck Ross; Sung in English with projected text over the stage.

While we may aspire to live with the gods in the heavens, hell is a LOT more fun. This satirical operetta takes the stuffing out of Greek mythology and proves that nothing is sacred in this wickedly funny and naughty romp that will inspire you to kick up your heels and join us in its famous can-can.
