ONDINE was presented at the Sutro Baths in San Francisco, May-June 2015.
Ondine is a tragic love story between a mystical creature of the depths and a mortal man of hubris. A fable of the follies of love, Ondine is also an exploration of our human relationship with Nature. Worlds collide, the natural world flirts with the established social order and immortal powers plunge into the realm of mortals. Our story comes to life where the great western frontier at San Francisco’s Land’s End meets the ocean’s horizon.
Staged at Sutro Baths and Sutro Heights Park, we experience the great power and sense the timeless depths of the ocean as we wander amidst the eroded foundations of mansions and grand swimming pools. Audiences will move with the action of the play, exploring the park and taking in the expansive and breathtaking views of the great Pacific, while immersed in the enchanted realm of Ondine.
