Ulysses returns to Ithaca after the Trojan Wars to find his homeland unexpectedly charged with tensions from migrants escaping the same conflict. Disguised as a beggar, he returns to his palace and sees the many suitors who have been competing for his faithful wife Penelope’s hand.

A dramatic story of love, loyalty and vengeance.

The first in-the-round staging of Monteverdi’s early masterpiece of Baroque opera, bringing contemporary resonance to this great Greek legend.

Sung in English (with surtitles).

“A patchily effective staging... That this last nugget of Monteverdi worked at all was down to three magnificent singers.”

Mark Valencia (What's On Stage)

“All the principal parts, large and small, are expertly taken... Fulljames’ staging hits the spot.”

The Stage (Other reviewers)

“The reunion between father and son is heart-touching. Baritone Roderick Williams brings out Ulysses’s inner strength.”

Clare Colvin (Express)
