Event Details

Renegade Opera’s Orfeo in Underland follows the journey of Orfeo, a young musician, whose partner, Euridice, has passed away. Presented at twilight in the First Presbyterian Church’s ADA accessible outdoor plaza, Orfeo in Underland features English dialogue, a chamber orchestra, and fantastical puppetry. Music Director Danielle Jagelski’s original musical arrangement is for piano, string quintet, and 8 voices. Reflecting on the collective trauma brought about by the pandemic, Orfeo in Underland grapples with communal loss and asks what moving forward looks like.
