In Anais Mitchell's reshaping of a Hellenic story, Eurydice is presented as a young woman adept in surviving on her own in a world characterized by unpredictability, even in climate. Conversely, Orpheus is a fervent singer-songwriter overflowing with sentiments. Upon their first meeting, Eurydice is lured into an underworld factory, where Hades transforms his workers into mindless drones.
Orpheus embarks on a journey to retrieve her, assisted by his melodious tunes and Persephone (Hades' wife), he achieves bringing her back to his residence.
The cast is efficient, made up of merely 13 members, who remain on the forefront for the most of the performance. The chorus consists of five cast members, who provide their singing and dancing in the background to heighten the energy of the songs. Included among the actors the three Fates, combining singing, conversation, and interaction with the characters. The full seven-piece band for "Hadestown" performs the entire production while all except the drummer are seen on stage. The central protagonists embody the deities Hades and Persephone, as well as Orpheus and his beloved Eurydice.
Entertainment Weekly showered commendations on the Broadway rendition, stating, “When it comes to tales as ancient as time, the narratives of Greek mythology rank at the top, those epic stories of gods and mortals that have been recounted for centuries, inspiring endless interpretations. However, there's something remarkably contemporary and fresh about the method those stories - those ancient ballads, those poignant ballads - are delivered in Hadestown. As it premieres on Broadway, this voyage to the underworld feels as if it were a novel creation.”
