About the show

Thrilling acrobatics and striking video design combine to take us to hell and back in Circa’s award-winning production. Set to some of the most stirring music ever written, this is opera like you’ve never seen before.

Heartbroken Orpheus has been granted the chance to bring Eurydice, his dead wife, back to life from the underworld.

However, there is one condition; he must not look back at her, not even for a moment, on their long journey back or she will be condemned to the underworld forever.

Can Orpheus resist the temptation to look into the eyes of his true love?
