Mary Zimmerman's Metamorphoses brings Ovid's tales to stunning visual life. Set in and around a large pool of water onstage, Metamorphoses juxtaposes the ancient and the contemporary in both language and image to reflect the variety and persistence of narrative in the face of inevitable change. Metamorphoses played around the country and Off Broadway before moving to Broadway's Circle in the Square Theatre in March 2002.

Based in David R. Slavitt's translation of The Metamorphoses of Ovid.
