I’ve been trying to put my finger on why Hades being depicted as a villain is so annoying in other media but works so well in Hadestown, and I think I’ve figured out why: Hadestown Hades isn’t the bad guy because he’s the god of the DEAD; instead, he’s the bad guy because he’s the god of WEALTH. Usually, whenever Hades appears in a movie or video game, he has some stupid motivation like “ughh I’m tired of being lord of the underworld I wanna be lord of everything” or “I’m the Greek mythology version of the western concept of Satan, fear me!!” but Hadestown really said screw that and made his motivation “I love my wife so much but we have a shitty marriage arrangement and her long absence combined with my severe self-doubt has lead me down the hellish road to corruption by all the riches under the ground.”

I will NEVER get over how Hadestown somehow manages to perfectly transform this old Greek myth into an analogy of immigration in America. Eurydice leaving the upper world to go to Hadestown because it’s been advertised as this land of prosperity and security, only for it to actually be a soul-sucking capitalist hellscape is a tragically real representation of the “American Dream.” Orpheus sneaking to Hadestown “around the back” and then getting beat up and being told to go back to where he came from is a perfect metaphor surrounding the treatment of undocumented immigrants. Hades brainwashing his citizens into building literal and metaphorical walls around themselves so that outsiders can’t steal their jobs may not have been intended to be so shockingly relevant, but it’s still a chilling image nonetheless. Political themes in media can often feel forced if done wrong, but the way Hadestown seamlessly weaves these ideas into its plotline revolving around a man saving his lover from the Underworld is SUPER well done
