THE GUTHRIE THEATER IN CO-PRODUCTION WITH BERKELEY REPERTORY THEATRE PRESENT

Metamorphoses

based on the myths of Ovid
written and directed by MARY ZIMMERMAN
from the translation by DAVID R. SLAVITT

Overview

A visually stunning masterpiece

In what’s considered her signature theatrical piece, once hailed as “the theater event of the year” (Time), Tony Award-winning director and playwright Mary Zimmerman juxtaposes the ancient and the contemporary in a visually stunning theatricalization of Roman poet Ovid’s powerful masterwork, Metamorphoses. Performed in and around a large pool of water, a ravishing effect, an ensemble of actors embodies figures from Greek mythology to share both well-known and rarely told stories of transformation.
