The Latin Qvarter: ‘Performing Ovid’

Join us for a live reading of stories from Ovid’s Metamorphoses (a blend of Latin and English) on the evening of Monday, 13th December.

 

Hear the tale of Pyramus & Thisbe and their doomed love, the story of Baucis and Philemon – equally loving (and living much longer) – and the fate of the disbelieving Pentheus¬† …

We start with Mother Earth’s appeal to Jupiter to stop the world burning up … read by Emma Kirkby. The supporting cast is pretty hot too, with Ben Cartlidge, Matthew Hargreaves, Andy Keen, Katie Marshall, Llewelyn Morgan and George Sharpley.

 

Further information and FREE joining details available here.
