Return of Ulysses
Grab your monocle and buckle up for a wild fucking ride into the world of Baroque opera and Greek mythology. Does that sound dull to you? Then you're not living right. This production from the big boys at The Royal Opera promises more thrills and chills than University Challenge. The narrative centres on Ulysses as he returns to Ithaca after the Trojan Wars, only to discover that a bunch of migrants fleeing the same war are flexing on his lady, Penelope. It's an epic romance to rival When Harry Met Sally, punctuated with a classic tale of vengeance. The production will be making use of the Roundhouse's unique, immersive space to really bring the story to life.
