Offenbach’s rhythmic and imaginative music, with songs that could nowadays beat every Eurovision hit, the wittiness and excellent punch lines of the libretto written by Hector Crémieux and Ludovic Halévy, and the chance of giving an enjoyable spectacle to the audience are the reasons why the operetta Orpheus in the Underworld should be staged again and again.

Who is this Orpheus, and why should I care what he did or did not do in the underworld, or how he ended up there in the first place? Then again, the underworld is a fascinating and unusual place, and none of the spectators have ever been there. Why not show a musical and playful version of this sinful place to the audience, whereas they do not need to be afraid of being thrown into a boiling cauldron.

The story itself is simple and only a little bit supernatural: the mythical Orpheus who charmed everyone with his singing and lyre-playing, has become a violin professor who – oh no! – loses his wife Eurydice by accident and goes to the gods to demand her back. Only that in Offenbach’s opera, he does not go voluntarily, as he actually wants to get rid of the woman; also, she has been having an affair with a neighbour, who later turns out to be Pluton, the ruler of the underworld, so Eurydice is happy to die so that she could be with him. Orpheus is forced to embark on the heroic journey to the underworld by a character called the Public Opinion who ensures that both the myth and moral rules are being followed. Before descending to the underworld, they seek for Eurydice at Jupiter’s, which is when the king of the gods finds out about his younger brother’s conquests and starts to desire the woman himself. Eurydice has nothing against the higher-ranking deity either. However, in the end, both of them lose out and the woman ends up with Bacchus, the god of wine, which she does not seem to mind either. Nobody else seems to be bothered about it, since it is time for the timelessly cheerful cancan that everybody dances to, including the Public Opinion.
