Theatrical Event Metamorphoses Opens this Week

Set in and around a large swimming pool, Metamorphoses examines the consequences of our deepest desires.

Myths come to life in a new, fascinating show at the National Arts Centre. Metamorphoses, based on the Myths of Ovid, is set in and around a massive swimming pool, adding a unique element to this theatrical event that will let audiences experience the consequences of our deepest desires. Mary Zimmerman reimagines 10 classical myths to achieve this end, including Midas and his impulsive greed, and Orpheus’ attempt to rescue his bride from the Underworld.

Metamorphoses runs from Jan. 29 to Feb. 16 at the National Arts Centre.
