About The Return of Ulysses

After fighting in the Trojan War and wandering the seas, Ulysses has finally returned home. But everything has changed and instead of a hero’s welcome, Ulysses finds his palace occupied by rival kings keen to seduce his wife Penelope and kill his son. Will Ulysses regain his wife and home?

Fernando Guimarãres, last seen in Australia in the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra’s Handel: Heaven and Harmony, stars as Ulysses, a role he has sung to international acclaim. Australian mezzo-soprano Catherine Carby, whose ravishing tone and deeply moving performances have earned her rave reviews around the world, joins him as Penelope.
