About This Show

Avenue Theater presents the regional premiere of Mary Zimmerman’s mesmerizing play Metamorphoses, based on Ovid’s epic tales about the power of love to transform. This unique mix of dance, music, comedy, and tragedy breathes new life into the legend of King Midas and the tales of Cupid, Psyche, Aphrodite, and Orpheus.

“Dignity and love do not blend well,
nor do they continue long together.” — Ovid
