Just as Orpheus' voice has the power to bring the world back in sync in Hadestown, we have the power to help demand and build a sustainable future.
Hadestown and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a leading environmental organization, are coming together to raise awareness, bring a greater sense of urgency, and push for action on the issue of climate change. The effects of climate change—rising sea levels, historic storms, destructive fires and floods, severe droughts—are real, and people all over the world are feeling the repercussions right now. Together, Hadestown and NRDC are helping take climate action beyond the stage to educate audiences and encourage people to join NRDC in the fight against the greatest environmental challenge of our time.
