Choreographer Lonneke van Leth : “In many colorful and spectacular scenes we see Odysseus being taken away from his family to wage war. The gods are not charmed by his cunning character and create for him a quest that he must endure to return to his beloved wife Penelope and son Telemachus. A journey full of joys, hardships and tribulations he lays down.
