"Sing in me, Muse, and through me tell the story
of that man skilled in all ways of contending,
the wanderer, harried for years on end..."

In Mary Zimmerman's sweeping adaptation of Homer's classic adventure, our hero Odysseus undergoes an epic journey to return to his own kingdom after the fall of Troy. He'll have to overcome witches, mythological beasts and the gods themselves if he ever hopes to see his wife and son again.

Since 1958, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival has delighted audiences with professional theatre on the CU Boulder campus. Complete your Colorado summer with Shakespeare under the stars in the historic Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre—complimentary seatbacks included.
