This is a late-night, Dionysian retelling of the story from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, using the techniques of clown, bouffon and music. The Underworld is a night club. Fate is a DJ. The lovers, Orpheus and Eurydice are chased through the worlds of light and darkness by three grotesque bouffons whose only joy is destruction, and the occasional lighthearted musical number. Can Orpheus save Eurydice from the underworld? Can Eurydice save Orpheus from himself? Will love triumph over death?
