To Hell and Back

  • Arlington St. Church 351 Boylston St. Boston, MA 02116 United States (map)

Jake Heggie’s, one-act opera, To Hell and Back, is a sensitive and beautiful contemporary exploration of abuse, redemption, and empowerment told through the lens of the Ancient Greek myth of the Rape of Persephone. The performance will be followed by a talk-back featuring speakers from the Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministry’s domestic violence safehouse, which will provide resources about how to identify and combat domestic violence for people and relationships within any demographic. 20% of all ticket proceeds will be donated to UUUM’s domestic violence safehouse.

Tickets can be found here.

In order to help you best prepare for the opera, please note that “To Hell and Back” contains sensitive material referencing intimate partner violence.
