Demeter, the Greek goddess of harvest, loves her daughter Persephone more than life itself. So after Persephone is kidnapped by Hades and taken as his bride, Demeter's sorrow covers the earth in winter sw. The crops fail, and Zeus sends his messenger Hermes to bring about Persephone's release. In turn hilarious and deeply moving, Glen Huser's interpretation of the iconic Greek myth offers an enchanting yet powerful reflection of life. Accompanied by a CD of the lyrics performed as an opera choral by Montreal school children, whilst narration comes from legend Terry Jones.
