In the Greek myth, when the musician Orpheus sings and plays, the wild beasts and even the stones are moved. His bride Eurydice dies on her wedding day, and Orpheus descends into the underworld, where his music draws tears even from Pluto and secures Eurydice’s release. Sarah Ruhl’s lyrical retelling of the myth focuses on Eurydice. Orpheus is a singer, but Eurydice is a thinker; the play pits his music, her thought, and their love against the oblivion of death.
Might not engage pre-teens.
