Cursed to lure and entangle mortals with their magical songs, or die if someone heard them and escaped, the Sirens of Greek mythology were fated to be pawns in their own lonely existence.  Shakespeare’s heroines often suffer the same fate, innocently attracting people and situations that ultimately lead to their sad demise.

Experience these heroines through music, mask, movement, and their glorious text:

Marina– from Pericles, Prince of Tyre
Desdemona– from Othello
Titania – from Midsummer Night’s Dream
Cleopatra – from Antony & Cleopatra
Ophelia – from Hamlet  & Gaoler’s Daughter – from Two Noble Kinsmen
