Program Notes

Orphée aux enfers, whose title translates from the French as Orpheus in the Underworld, is an opéra bouffe. Its score was composed by Jacques Offenbach to a French text written by Ludovic Halévy and later revised by Hector-Jonathan Crémieux. The work, first performed in 1858, is said to be the first classical full-length operetta.

The Infernal Galop from Act 2, Scene 2, is famous outside classical circles as the music for the "can-can", upon which Whitcomb's Le Can is based.
