'Prepare to be transported to 1930s Paris where legendary musician, Django Reinhardt, has been cast as the lead in a new production of Orpheus. Your host for the evening is the charismatic songstress Yvette Pépin. With her troupe of operatic players she will perform the thrilling tale of Orpheus’s ill-fated descent into the underworld to reclaim his lost love, Eurydice. Set to a live score of Hot Club jazz, opera and French chanson, Orpheus is a musical re-imagining of the epic Greek myth.'
