Delgado’s Theatre program opened “Eurydice” Nov. 17. In “Eurydice” by Sarah Ruhl, the playwright reimagines the classic myth of Orpheus through the eyes of its heroine. Dying too young on her wedding day, “Eurydice” must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love. The contemporary characters, ingenious plot twists and breathtaking visual effects, give this play a fresh look at a timeless love story.

The play is directed by Kris LaMorte. Scene and costume design are by Jerry L. Johnson; lighting and sound design are by Tom Dawson. “Eurydice” can be seen at the Delgado Drama Hall, 615 City Park Ave., 3rd floor. The production runs for one week only: Tuesday, Nov. 17 through Sunday, Nov.22. The curtain time for Tuesday-Saturday performances is 8 pm and the Sunday matinee, Nov. 22, is at 3 pm.


Tickets are $10 general admission, $8 Delgado students, faculty and staff. For reservations and/or additional information, call 504-671-6360.
