Metamorphoses
by Mary Zimmerman
Directed by Eve Muson
Set/Costume Design: Elena Zlotescu
Light/Sound Design: Terry Cobb
Vocal Direction: Lynn Watson

Set in and around a large pool of water, Metamorphoses is a vibrant retelling of Ovid's classical transformation myths, subtly mixing the ancient stories of suffering and forgiveness with contemporary language, humor and thought. From the romantic tragedy of Orpheus and Eurydice to the bittersweet comedy of Phaeton's therapy session, Metamorphoses celebrates the redemptive power of storytelling and imagination, the resilience of the human spirit in the face of inevitable change, and the transformational power of love.
