May 16th -18th
The wedding begins at 8pm
General Admission tickets grant you entrance into the wedding as a guest of Orpheus or Eurydice.
Premium Tickets give you the opportunity to step into the role of bridesmaid or groomsmen and give you more intimate access to the bride and groom. There are only 4 premium tickets available per performance (2 bridesmaid tickets & 2 groomsmen tickets). You are welcome to choose either no matter what gender you identify as.
Presented by The Center at West Park: Beloved/Departed is an immersive experience that lasts approximately 2 hours. You must be able to stand and walk for the duration of the performance, including up and down stairs. The wedding will begin promptly at 8pm; late admittance is up to the discretion of our front of house staff. Be advised that haze and laser effects will be used in this experience. Please notify our front of house upon arrival if you think this will be an issue for you. Dressing for the occasion is highly encouraged - think, semi-formal relaxed spring wedding but comfortable footwear is advised. Food and beverage will be served/available at different points throughout the night. If you have serious food allergies or do not wish to consume alcohol, we suggest you politely decline any offers of snacks or drinks. There will also be a free, mandatory coat and bag check at the start of the experience.

Beloved/Departed is presented and made possible by:
Beloved/Departed is Linked Dance Theatre's next full length production, on the largest scale we have produced to date! For our 10th show, we are immersing audiences in the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, as they attend their wedding and see this fabled story come to life before their eyes. But, as the night unfolds, Orpheus and Eurydice's love will be tested, and ultimately they and the audience will face the question: is love enough to hold us together?
As the largest scale production we have produced to date, we hope to immerse audiences fully in the world of the wedding of Orpheus and Eurydice. Beloved/Departed includes an original score, the most ambitious production design we’ve undertaken, an amazing production team to help us pull it off, and the biggest cast we have ever worked with, all contained within the largest space we have performed in, to bring the world of the Greek gods to life. It is a challenge, but an exciting one, and we are ready to take this on! Won't you join us for the wedding of the year?
