2024 Orpheus Monarchs
Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka

Every year since its inception in 1993, Orpheus has had a Celebrity Monarch  reign over the Krewe of Orpheus.

The Captain's Galleon 

It made its debut in 2023, and was designed by Derek Franklin.

The "Captain's Galleon" carries our Captain and his guests.

"Music of the Spheres"

Our theme for 2024 comes from creations brought together from the mind of
Derek Franklin,Manuel Ponce and the Mardi Gras World Team.



In 2024, we will celebrate our 31st anniversary with Monarchs Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka.


Joining our monarchs at the black-tie gala as our musical headliner, is international singing star Taylor Dayne

Also... sharing the Orpheuscapade stage for the eight-hour live music and dance spectacular will be Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, 12 South, and The Mixed Nuts.
