Orpheus and Euripides

Thanks to Steven Eldredge for drawing my attention to an amusing misprint in the color brochure for the New York City Ballet's fall season. The blurb for Stravinsky's Orpheus reads in part:
This highly-stylized, narrative ballet depicts Orpheus’ journey to rescue his beloved Euripides from the underworld.
I haven't seen the brochure myself, but I did see the misprint repeated on a page from the New York City Ballet's web site, from which I captured this screenshot:

Poor Eurydice!
