City Park Stage


A joyful 45-minute exploration of love, music, and hope for the future. 

The Orpheus myth opens with the death of Eurydice, but their story began long before that. Discover the legend of the original star-crossed lovers in this pop-up musical experience. Performers from South Asian and Western musical traditions imagine a prequel to Monteverdi’s opera. A perfect introduction to this timeless myth, and opera itself, for audiences of all ages. 


Please note: there are two separate A Tale of Orpheus and Eurydice events. The first will take place at 14:10 until 14:55 and the second will take place at 16:15 until 17:00.
