Opera singers, musicians, half life-sized puppets and animated film come together to retell the Greek myth of Ulysses. In Kentridge's version of Monteverdi's opera, Ulysses is no longer in Ithaca.

His romantic return to Penelope has become an epic dream that evokes not only classical Greece but also Monteverdi's Venice and contemporary South Africa. 'Ulysses is sick.

Music Claudio Monteverdi. Company English Baroque Soloists. Company Monteverdi Choir. Conductor John Eliot Gardiner. Director Elsa Rooke.
