Anais Mitchell - Original Post: 8/5/2010

A folk opera based on a Greek myth but referencing the sound of the early 1900s! And back in the day Anais was my baby-sitter. Small world.
"Based upon the ancient Greek myth of the poet Orpheus and his doomed quest to rescue his wife Eurydice from the underworld, Anaïs Mitchell's new album Hadestown evokes our Depression-era past, the current financial disaster (though it was written before the stock market collapse), and a post-apocalyptic future."
