The Spirit of Orpheus

Being in business for 100 years is no small feat and Orpheus Musical Theatre Society is very proud to be able to exercise bragging rights, just for this!  We've been entertaining audiences for a century and the spirit of Orpheus is just as alive today as it was in 1906.


To celebrate this milestone, The Spirit of Orpheus was written and orchestrated specifically for us.  This anniversary musical extravaganza is a wonderful reprise of some of the best numbers to ever grace an Orpheus stage.  You'll be enjoying music from over 65 different shows as well as three original songs created for this celebration.  It features Glee Club favourites, Gilbert and Sullivan ditties, operetta excerpts, and song & dance selections form Broadway's greatest hits.  It's a cavalcade of the most memorable musical moments - past, present, and future - with everything from Oklahoma to Mamma Mia!


Orpheus is thrilled to pay tribute to 100 years of entertaining Ottawa and we're very pleased that you can join us for this exciting stroll down memory lane.  Tap your toes, clap your hands and smile - that's the spirit of Orpheus!
