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).
