Following record-breaking runs at New York Theatre Workshop and Edmonton's Citadel Theatre, Hadestown arrives at London's National Theatre ahead of its eagerly anticipated Broadway bow next year. Celebrated singer-songwriter Anais Mitchell and visionary director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) have transformed Mitchell's acclaimed concept album into a genre-defying new work that blends modern American folk music with vintage New Orleans jazz to reimagine a sweeping ancient tale.

This groundbreaking musical follows songwriter Orpheus and his mythical quest to overcome Hades and regain the favor of his one true love, Eurydice. Mitchell's mesmerizing melodies and poetic imagination pit nature against industry, faith against doubt, and love against fear. Performed by an international ensemble of actors, dancers and singers, Hadestown delivers a resonant and moving theatrical experience. Welcome to the intriguing and beautiful world of "your next musical theater obsession" (Vogue).
