As you take your seat, be prepared for the possibility of your own transformation.

Based on a 2000-year-old epic poem, and taking place in a 2000-gallon pool of water designed for Globe Theatre’s stage, Metamorphoses will be one of the most ambitious and magical productions you've ever seen at the Globe Theatre.

First published in ancient Rome, Ovid's Metamorphoses is a mythological history of the world populated by vengeful gods and goddesses, and mortals both noble and notorious. It is a comic and tragic exploration of how we are all transformed, by love, by hate, by circumstance and by our own choices.

With this contemporary adaptation, Mary Zimmerman has brought the passion, romance, and boundless emotion of Greek myth to new life. The disastrous greed of Midas, the immortal love of Orpheus and Eurydice, the blinding power of Eros -- these and many other mythological characters will take the stage and grab our imaginations once again.
