Offenbach is the Grand Maître of French operetta and Orpheus in the Underworld, his irreverent parody of mythology’s greatest lovers is his masterpiece, boasting an effervescent score culminating in the celebrated ‘can-can.’ Orphée aux Enfers will be sung in the original French with new English dialogue by Michael Patrick Albano who also directs. This new production is choreographed by Anna Theodosakis and designed by James Bolton (scenery), Lisa Magill (costumes) and Wesley McKenzie (lighting). The UTSO will be conducted by renowned Canadian baritone Russell Braun in his conducting debut for the Faculty of Music.
