Customer Reviews for Hadestown
Hadestown is innovative and miraculous.
The acoustics of Bass Hall allow North American touring company to sound better than the album recording. Nathan Lee Graham plays Hermes as a dazzling narrator. Antonio Rodriguez plays Orpheus with a voice like pure silver. Matthew Patrick Quinn plays Hades with a bass voice that is so rich to be a little scary. The choreography is as beautiful as a symphony. The libretto depicts current political divisiveness, greed, cruelty, cognitive dissonance and futility worthy of Sysiphus in a setting of New Orleans and the rust belt. It is refined and memorable. The performance brings the audience along through joy, apprehension, desperate grief and hope.
Saw it in Toronto and it was awesome! Jordan Bollwerk played Orpheus and was amazing! Great music and great show! I definitely recommend
Wow, just Wow!
I saw Hadestown with a friend on July 22 in Toronto. The show was amazing and was truly something different then what I have seen on stage before. The musicians on stage and the actors and actresses playing them while acting was a site to see. The stand out of the show was J. Antonio Rodriguez who played the part of Orpheus. His voice, his passion, and his talent was so clear and he left me in awe and covered in goosebumps. Bravo Mr. Rodriguez, I can't wait for your next acting endeavour and hope to be able to see you on stage again.
I saw this yesterday and I am just blown away. I wish I could go back in time and relive all of it again. This cast was exceptional and I wish I could have gotten a recording of the music the way they did it, because everyone in this cast is SO incredibly talented. Gorgeous show, fun and moving music, and such a fantastic storyline. I would see it again and again and again.
AMAZING! Amazing! Amazing! is all I can say this was the Best! The show kept me wanting more and still does. Thank you to all of you!
My daughter and I saw the Sunday night performance and we blown away. She hasnâ€™t stopped raving about it for three days. I went to by her the soundtrack and was surprised. The cast in Madison in my opinion was better that the broad version. The musicians were fantastic. Orpheus in particular vocally and performance stood out but the entire cast and musical accompaniments were outstanding. Thank you all for a wonderful experience:).
