Storytelling, Traditional

Orpheus/Orfeo


Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2024

(21-25 Aug: 6:45pm)

The story of Orpheus and Eurydice gets a Scottish twist in this dark and dangerous telling of the famous Greek myth.

For the first time, the Shetland ballad of King Orfeo is swirled into the murky depths of Hades’ underworld in an exploration of grief and loss inspired by the words of people who live and work most closely with it.

Storyteller Daniel Serridge, harpist Neil Wood and balladeer Heather Cartwright take you deep below the earth and back again, pushing you forward, dragging you home and demanding that you don’t look back!

Originally commissioned for the Scottish International Storytelling Festival 2023.

'A thrilling, emotional journey' ***** (TheQR.co.uk).
