Metamorphoses::mythes des femmes

In Ovid's epic poem 'Metamorphoses' we first encounter the wood nymph Syrinx and the beginnings of the water nymph, Undine. But what does Syrinx have in common with Undine? Both must suffer for love, both must sacrifice their very essence and transform to survive, both show us what it means to be woman, to be human.

Come and join us as we explore the tale of these two beings. Through the music of Debussy and Reinecke and accompanying poetry, stories and other literature from the time, we will unravel the magic and tragedy of these mythical women.
