A century and a half before Hadestown’s irreverent take on the underworld, this comic operetta presented a shocking and satiric twist on tales of the gods. After its Paris premiere, an outraged critic condemned the work as "a profanation of holy and glorious antiquity,” increasing both interest and ticket sales!
