Hadestown is a musical based off the 2010 folk opera album also known as Hadestown. The musical first took the stage in 2016 as an off-Broadway production. The original production only lasted two months in New York before adaptations moved to Edmonton and London. In 2019 an on Broadway production took the stage and quickly received several awards and nominations. Among those included eight Tony Awards, with one being for the Best Musical.
In an unforgettable journey to the underworld and back, Hadestown combines the two classic mythic tales of Orpheus and Eurydice and King Hades and Persephone. Adapted to a more modern tale, the story is set in a Great Depression inspired era. Promising to stay together forever Orpheus and Eurydice put their relationship to the ultimate test when financial struggles hit. Persuaded by Hades, the ruler of the underworld, Eurydice agrees to go to the “comforts” of the underworld factory to live. When finding out that his girlfriend went down to the underworld Orpheus must take whatever steps are necessary to get her back. After Persephone convinced Hades to let the lovers go, Hades struck up a deal. They could leave together, but Orpheus had to lead the way and must trust Eurydice without looking to see if she followed. Orpheus agrees, beginning his walk out of Hadestown. At the very end of the path, unable to trust Eurydice he turns around to see if she follows. In doing so he condemned her to Hadestown forever.
