GODDESSES IN THE STUDIO

Posted on 07 August 2019 By Rose Mulready

The hunter goddess Artemis reunites with her resurrected bestie Orion in a touching pas de deux that takes them to the stars. Sylvia, a nymph in Artemis' army, battles against a river god who tries to abduct her – it’s all happening in Sylvia rehearsals.

When Sylvia takes off her armour to bathe, the river god Alpheus seizes his chance to abduct her.

At the beginning of Sylvia, Artemis is tricked into mortally wounding her dearest Orion, a fellow hunter. Eventually, Zeus takes pity on his daughter and grants Orion everlasting life in the stars. Overjoyed, Artemis and Orion share a blissful pas de deux in the heights of the sky.
