WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The lyrical narrative spans both time and continents, following the journey of a present-day Odysseus and a beautiful house servant Helen, who incites her own Trojan War. The narrative is rooted on Saint Lucia, Walcott's home island, and will be underscored by live music to evoke its Caribbean atmosphere and culture.
Caribbean writer Derek Walcott adapts his Nobel Prize-winning epic poem Omeros for its world premiere run at Lakeside Theatre.
