Persephone (Homeric Hymn)

Duration: about 60 minutes

This is among the most surprising of our dramatisations. It presents the classic version of the myth of Autumn and Spring (as told by Ovid in Latin and in a Greek Homeric Hymn) within a frame of famous passages from Shakespeare and Milton (Perdita’s flower speech and Ceres’s pain).
