About this show

Jupiter falls madly in love with Alcmene, the chaste wife of Amphytryon, a Theban general. But how to approach her? A little later Alcmene is seduced by her own husband, or so she thinks... And as a result, little Hercules is born. The first identity theft in history, this Roman comedy was the original source for over 30 novels, plays (including Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors and Harold Pinter's The Lovers), and two motion pictures. Catch a glimpse at the Roman hedonistic approach to life, where Gods and mortals sometimes live and dance together.
