- Orpheus in the Underworld
"Eurydice is married to Orpheus, a musician who, in her opinion, plays the violin badly. Fed up with her husband, she falls for the randy and devious Pluto and is soon caught up in a somewhat hellish situation. Meanwhile, bored to tears and spying an interesting situation unfolding, Public Opinion muscles in to 'help' Orpheus rescue his wife. But does she want to be rescued?"
For the 2011 Scottish Opera production, satirist Rory Bremner has been commissioned to provide a translation - promising an extra injection of satire into Offenbach's catchy tunes and wit.
