The performance of Hadestown began with several catchy songs that immediately drew the audience in. As the story unfolded, it was evident that great attention had been paid to detail, with many emotional songs enhancing the narrative. One personal highlight was the lighting, which beautifully underscored the emotions of each scene. The set design was visually stunning, leaving us speechless during the dramatic stage transformation toward the end of the first act.

It offers the chance to watch the boats in action, as well as a look into the different pathways into SailGP.
