Homer's The Odyssey

Date: March 19, 2020, 7:30 PM
Venue: McCain Auditorium - 1501 Goldstein Circle, Manhattan
Sponsor: McCain Performance Series

The Event:

Homer’s “The Odyssey” is the epic tale of one man’s decade long struggle to return home. One of the most famous tales in world literature, “The Odyssey” remains an influential and moving portrait of Odysseus’ monumental journey — one fraught with obstacles, dangers, and temptations. A testament to perseverance and the human spirit, “The Odyssey” was originally performed by highly-skilled bards across the ancient Mediterranean world. Aquila Theatre now presents a thrilling new dramatic adaptation of this timeless poem in 2019/2020. Odysseus is the great strategic mind of the Greek army at Troy. He is at first reluctant to leave his wife Penelope and newborn son to go to battle, but his masterful tricks of deception helps defeat the Trojans and end the 10-year-long war. His homecoming is just as long and treacherous as the war itself. As Odysseus sails across the seas, forced to confront a fantastical array of mythical creatures, sorcerers, monsters and divine forces, he must use all his strength, skill and intellect to survive. When he finally returns home to Ithaca, he comes disguised as a beggar. His own halls are plagued with gluttonous suitors determined to force Penelope to choose a new husband and king. Parental Advisory: Some material may not be appropriate for children under 12.
