Forget about DeLoreans, hot tubs and phone booths — for five days in September, travelling to another time is as easy as stepping inside The Tivoli. In Orpheus, Fortitude Valley will become Paris, and the present day will become the 1930s, as Brisbane Festival takes audiences on an immersive theatre ride.

Here, musician Django Reinhardt has been cast as the lead in a musical reimagining of Orpheus — and you're about to see the end results. Revisit the famous underworld romance, listen to a toe-tapping score of jazz, opera and French chanson, and eat and drink as if you really had ventured back nearly a century. There'll be free music beforehand, dancing afterwards on Friday and Saturday nights, and fitting food aplenty. Think brioche, brie, baguettes and providore platters.
