About Alceste at Dupont Underground

A stunningly beautiful score by Handel meets the timeless words of Euripides.

Written at the dawn of theater itself, Euripides’ tragicomedy masterpiece ALCESTE blends the funny and the sad with the surprising and transcendent. Presented for the first time with a stunningly beautiful score by G.F. Handel, written to accompany a now lost translation of Euripides’ play, as well as music from Handel’s opera “Admeto." Real life husband and wife KenYatta and Michelle Rogers take the title couple role, joined by Maribeth DIggle (Desdemona) as the irreverent hero Hercules. Euripides’ Greek chorus becomes an ensemble of some of the best Baroque voices in the area, all accompanied by the acclaimed INnovatio Baroque Orchestra. Famed poet Ted Hughes’ free and imaginative translation is the heart of this production, with new texts by DC playwright Sybil Roberts.
