The Department of Theatre and Dance invites you to LIKE A BAT OUT OF HADES!
Welcome to Ombelico Mask Ensemble’s latest experimental concoction: LIKE A BAT OUT OF HADES! Fusing Commedia dell’Arte with ancient Greek tragedy and traditional Italian puppetry, this show is a ridiculous re-imagining of the Euripedes play ALCESTIS.
Admeto strikes a deal with the Fates to avoid going to Hades… someone must go in his place. His wife Alcestis thinks that Hades sounds like a lovely vacation getaway! But after she leaves Admeto has second thoughts. Enter his best friend Hercules promising to return Alcestis from the underworld but Apollo and Death have other plans…
