Metamorphoses

Date: 28 Jan 2018

Drawing on the poetry of Ovid, Mary Zimmerman’s Metamorphoses went from a university campus showing in 1996 to a full-scale Broadway production. Its themes of transformation, loss and the eternal power of love resonated powerfully in a city still in shock after 9/11.

It was also famous as “the play with the pool”, which this staging by Apocalypse Theatre and director Dino Dimitriadis recreates in the close confines of the Old Fitzroy Theatre. The cast of nine includes Deborah Galanos, Diana Popovska and the recent winner of the Sydney Theatre Award for Best Newcomer, Zoe Terakes.
