Scenes from The Odyssey

About the Performance


Scenes from The Odyssey by Homer adapted and originally directed by Mary Zimmerman from the translation of “The Odyssey” by Robert Fitzgerald will be presented (April 20-29) in the Guthrie Theater’s Dowling Studio by the University of Minnesota /Guthrie Theater BFA 2018 graduating class. A modern young woman struggles to understand The Odyssey, when a muse magically appears and suddenly, the young woman becomes the goddess Athena--a tireless advocate for Odysseus in his struggle to get home. Directed by Joel Sass, Odysseus's epic journey becomes vividly theatrical, pulsing with live music, movement and dance bringing to life the hero's challenges, temptations and battles. “...Rich in imagery and imagination …a classic work for a contemporary audience."—Richard Christiansen, Chicago Tribune. Ticket sales begin Feb 20, 2018 at the Guthrie Theater; visit on line Guthrietheater.org
