From Tuesday to October 3, Little Bulb Theatre will return to the Nuffield with Orpheus, a musical re-imagining of the epic Greek myth inspired by the music of legendary jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt.

Set in 1930s Paris, charismatic songstress Yvette Pépin persuades Django to join her in a brand new production of Orpheus. Together with her operatic troupe she tells the tale of Orpheus’s ill-fated descent into the underworld, set to a live score of hot club jazz, opera and French chanson.
