Producers Mara Isaacs and Dale Franzen, and Warner Classics, in collaboration with Ghostlight Records, have released a new recording of the acclaimed Off-Broadway musical Hadestown, recorded live during the original run of the show at New York Theatre Workshop. This new musical written by celebrated singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and developed with and directed by the three-time OBIE Award-winning director Rachel Chavkin, follows Orpheus' mythical quest to overcome Hades and regain the favor of his one true love, Eurydice. Together we travel from wide open plains where love and music are not enough nourishment to survive the winter, down to Hadestown, an industrialized world of mindless labor. Inspired by traditions of classic American folk music and vintage New Orleans jazz, Mitchell's beguiling melodies and poetic imagination pit nature against industry, faith against doubt, and love against death.

The is a lot of buzz around the original live cast album that was released on October 6. This is a positive step forward getting fans excited about the pre-Broadway run in Canada and for Broadway next year.  On the day of release, we were ranked 3rd on the iTunes soundtrack list, after Bladerunner and Hamilton.  We were also 3rd on the Amazon Broadway soundtrack list after Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen.
