Hadestown is coming to Washington, D.C.’s National Theater June 6-18 as the final show of the 2022-2023 season. This Tony and Grammy award winning musical written by Anaïs Mitchell tells the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. It intertwines two mythical tales- of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone.
In Hadestown, a song can change your fate. It tells the story of Eurydice, a young girl looking for something to eat. She goes to work in a hellish industrial version of the Greek underworld to escape poverty and cold and her poor singer-songwriter lover, Orpheus, comes to try to rescue her.
Theatre-goers are invited on an unforgettable journey to the underworld and back. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, singers, and dancers, Hadestown invites you to imagine how the world could be.
Hadestown is recommended for kids 8+. The performance is about 2 hours and 30 minutes and includes one 20 minute intermission. Please note the show includes strobe-like effects throughout.

Applying the SONGBIRD Discount for Hadestown Tickets
When searching for Hadestown tickets, you’ll do it through the Ticketmaster site. The code SONGBIRD actually unlocks tickets at a special rate called Influencers for select seats for the Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday performances. Here are the steps you need to go through to use the code to unlock special pricing for seats during these two shows:
1. To use the SONGBIRD discount code, log into your Ticketmaster account.
2. Select the show date and time.
3. Click the Unlock icon in the upper right corner of the screen and enter the code SONGBIRD.
4. This will bring up a seat map with available seats and rates using the SONGBIRD code.
5. You should see an unlocked lock and the discount code pricing underneath the Section and Row.
6. Select your seats with the Influencers pricing discount. I found Orchestra seats for as low as $84 (regularly $130/each) and Balcony seats for $68 (normally $95/each).
The code SONGBIRD is good for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evening performances.
