Metamorphoses by Mary Zimmerman
In this retelling of the classic Greek myths of Midas, Orpheus and Eurydice and others, we witness the trans- formative power of love, redemption, and forgiveness. Metamorphoses brings Ovid's tales to stunning visual life. Set in and around a pool of water onstage, Metamorphoses juxtaposes the ancient and the contempo- rary in both language and image to reflect the variety and persistence of narrative in the face of inevitable change. Nominated for three 2002 Tony Awards, including "Best Play," Metamorphoses earned Zimmerman a Tony for "Best Direction of a Play."
METAMORPHOSES was originally produced by Lookingglass Theatre Company, Chicago, October 1998. Premiered in New York City byThe Second Stage Theatre, New York, September, 2001.
