Ensemble Molière is again joined by Irish mezzo, Rachel Kelly, to tell the story of Andromeda’s rescue from the sea monster by Perseus, the son of Zeus and slayer of Medusa.

Perseus was the son of mighty Zeus and mortal Danae. He is best known as the slayer of the Gorgon Medusa, a fearsome monster, and as the rescuer of the Ethiopian princess Andromeda. Perseus came upon the beautiful and helpless maiden Andromeda, chained to the rocks waiting to be devoured by a sea monster. Perseus took Andromeda to her father Cepheus and asked for her hand in marriage.

Admission: €20/€15/€10
