Hello my dearies. Things are quite chaotic still here in Norway, so I thought it would be nice to share some wonderful, wonderful, amazing music: Anaïs Mitchell’s folk opera Hadestown.
This is a musical based on the story of Orpheus and Eurydice, but set in a post-apocalyptic American depression era. The cast includes, among others, Ms. Mitchell herself, Ani Difranco and Greg Brown.
I really, really, really recommend this CD to everyone. It is absolutely magical!
