The Odyssey: Find The Beginning with Emily Wilson

22 Jul 

At the Helicon

The Helicon is our intimate 190-seater performance space, designed with a nod to the Greek theatre which Seamus Heaney so loved, and where you can enjoy theatre, music, song, poetry, readings and talks inspired by his life and literature on the traverse stage.
 
Helicon, a mountain in Greece, is a sacred site in Greek mythology, said to have been favoured by the nine Muses – or Goddesses - who shared their divine gifts with mortals. It is the location of the Hippocrene spring which, in legend, is a source of poetic inspiration.
