One actor and one musician tell Homer’s timeless tale of fate and fury through vivid storytelling and live music. This imaginative theatrical experience brings us on the battlefield where gods, heroes, and empires clash in a quest for vengeance and glory—an age-old story reinvented for our modern era.
