THE EPIC LEGEND RE-IMAGINED
ENO and the Young Vic continue their South Bank Show Award-winning partnership with a new production of Monteverdi’s epic work based on the second half of Homer’s Odyssey.
The Return of Ulysses is directed by Benedict Andrews, whose many acclaimed productions include A Streetcar Named Desire at the Schaubuhne Berlin and his spectacular staging of Shakespeare’s The War of the Roses for Sydney Theatre Company.
'Another top-rate collaboration between ENO and the Young Vic. Bravo to both.' The Observer (ENO/Young Vic's 2010 Elegy for Young Lovers)
