About Hadestown

WELCOME TO HADESTOWN, WHERE A SONG CAN CHANGE YOUR FATE.

The record-breaking sensation by singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and director Rachel Chavkin is now playing to critical acclaim at the Lyric Theatre, London.

‘Big, beautiful and emotionally blasting’ (The Guardian), Hadestown  is the winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album. Seen by three million, streamed by over 350 million and adored by fans around the world, this sensational musical is ‘the most exhilarating ride’ (WhatsOnStage).

Hadestown takes you on an unforgettable journey to the underworld and back, intertwining two mythic love stories – that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone.

A deeply resonant and defiantly hopeful theatrical experience, Hadestown invites you to imagine how the world could be.

“Achingly beautiful and boldly original. Flawless”
