“Sing to me…” From the start, Homer’s epic tale of a hero’s journey home has been wedded to the singing voice. In Ben Moore and Kelley Rourke’s operatic rendition, featuring members of the Young Artists Program and the Glimmerglass Youth Chorus, stories of Odysseus and his faithful wife, Penelope, are given new life with rollicking sailor songs, dramatic storms, a mesmerizing Siren song, a riveting tango, a poignant love duet, and more. Action-packed, colorful, and just plain fun, Odyssey played to standing-room crowds in its 2015 premiere.
