The story of Orpheus is set in the physics building, where a hypnotic lecture on black holes serves as narration for the myth. Orpheus, played by acclaimed New York City cabaret singer Ann Hampton Callaway, makes a stunning singing descent through fantastical labs and observatories to retrieve Eurydice from Hades, a room eternally projecting the failures of modern science.
