In this mythological comedy drama, gods and mortals alike are shocked when the scheming Hades kidnaps Persephone from Mt. Olympus and holds her hostage in the Underworld. A pack of vain reporters clamors outside the gated of Zeus’s palace to get the scoop, while the Goddess of the Harvest crankily destroys all of the crops in an attempt to win Persephone back. In the midst of it all, two unlikely heroes arise in the form of a young lute layer named Orpheus and his bride-to-be Eurydice, who brave Hades’ bizarre kingdom in this clever send-up of Greek mythology.
