From acclaimed playwright Mary Zimmerman comes this dazzling adaptation of Ovid’s classic myths, juxtaposing the ancient and the contemporary in both language and image. Beginning with the well-known story of Midas and his golden touch, a magical world is conjured, where Gods and mortals co-exist and universal tales of fate, lost love, greed, and death are shared. The IStage Performance Ensemble uses theatricality and dance to bring to the stage this hauntingly beautiful script about humanity’s grappling with life’s tenacious craving for love.
