The Odyssey

The OdysseyT1647897123
Homer's epic poem tells the story of the most famous fictional journey in Western Culture: The Odysseus finally reaches his homeland of Ithaka; ten years at war, ten years at sea: what does it mean to be a hero? Having faced the terror of Skylla, Charybdis and the Cyclops, resisted the charms of Circe and seen all his men die, he must now confront himself. Odysseus must meet the son he last saw as a baby and the wife he left twenty years ago, now he must face the suitors who have tried to take his place.
Author Homer

Production details

The celebrated storytellers Daniel Morden and Hugh Lupton present the opportunity for young audiences to experience the entire story of the Trojan Wars in two bite-size chunks: The Illiad (the Greeks attacked Troy because of Helen? No! It was all down to a golden apple...), and The Odyssey (clever Odysseus does battle with witches, dragons and of course, the Cyclops...). See both on the same day. 1 hr 15 mins. Suitable for ages 10+
