Eurydice Rising

The University of Southern Maine’s Department of Theatre cordially invites you to Eurydice Rising, created in collaboration with the Osher School of Music.

Eurydice Rising reimagines one of Ancient Greece’s most iconic myths of Orpheus and Eurydice in theatre, opera, and dance. This beautiful, moving show is a feast for the eye and ears as it follows Orpheus’s journey into the underworld to be reunited with his young bride, Eurydice, after her death. It’s a story of love, loss, and creative expression that exceeds the bounds of life and death, presence and absence.

Appropriate for ages 10 and up. All performances are at Russell Hall on the Gorham campus.
