A stunning performance by Mike O’Connor and harpist Barbara Griggs, this performance is a mix of powerful oral storytelling and beautiful music and song, from the team that produced the award-winning Return to Lyonesse and songs for TV’s Poldark.
Odysseus, hero of heroes, survived Troy. He fought men, gods, storms and monsters. Yet what is to be his fate? Gods, prophets, dreams, can they be trusted? Only the storyteller knows. This is the tale of Odysseus, hero of The Iliad and The Odyssey, an epic story that is the foundation stones of Western literature.
However, Odysseus Dreaming is not just a great tale, for Odysseus always seeks one more adventure. What is his destiny? What is our destiny?
This is the tale of tales, the ultimate story. Odysseus Dreaming is based on texts by Homer, Hesiod, Virgil, Dante and Tennyson.
