Hartford, CT 06106

The Bushnell Performing Arts Center in Hartford CT hosted a FREE concert of the folk opera "Hadestown" on November 19. The Autorino Great Hall was filled with folks curious about the modern day opera penned by a talented singer/songwriter from Vermont.
From Anais' Website:
Vermont folk singer Anaïs Mitchell’s remarkable folk opera Hadestown is a modern retelling of the Orpheus myth, a tale of a poet’s doomed quest to rescue his wife from the underworld.  In Mitchell’s inspired hands, the familiar saga unfolds in post-apocalyptic modern America, where poverty and hunger force people to make difficult choices in order to survive.  Mitchell will be joined by the Hadestown Orchestra featuring the Chorney Sextet.
