Orpheus Down Under

Adapted by Tim Riley and Lynn Binstock from Offenbach’s Orpheus in the Underworld 

A 1960’s couple on the verge of divorce become entangled with the gods of Greek mythology, who are themselves embroiled in competition as ‘Team Olympus’.  This global romp travels from a pub in Kent to Bondi Beach (where Beach Volleyball merges with the Can-Can), via the training camp on Mount Olympus.

Orpheus toured widely in 2010, including 3 nights at the Scoop for free.
