Catch the record-breaking Hadestown musical at Lyric Theatre, returning to the West End following its multi-award-winning run on Broadway.

An epic celebration of music, togetherness and hope, take an unforgettable journey to the underworld and back with stunning sets and musically thrilling songs.

What is Hadestown about?

Dive into singer songwriter Anais Mitchell’s joyful combination of folk, pop, Dixieland and blues, with this musical theatre staging of the acclaimed concept album promising a deeply resonant and defiantly hopeful theatrical experience.

Intertwining two mythical love stories, that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice and the story of King Hades and his wife Persephone, this modern-day retelling of the ancient Greek myth returns to the West End five years after its UK premiere at the National Theatre.

The powerful tale of love, loss and hard-won hope by director Rachel Chavkin holds the record for the highest grossing musical and the longest-running show in Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theatre’s almost century-long history.

Awarded eight Tony Awards in 2019 including Best Musical and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album, you’ll be singing the wonderfully diverse score in your head for days.
