MAfestival 2014: 1-10 aug

One of the biggest literary masterpieces of all time, Ovid's Metamorphoses, served as a source of inspiration for the 51st edition of MAfestival Bruges, from 1–10 August 2014.


A wide variety of transformations from Greek and Roman mythology unfolds in the epic poem, as Ovid narrates of numerous characters and their metamorphoses in a stunningly colorful and imaginative language. 'Everything changes, nothing perishes,' a thought which remains fascinatingly topical in the 21st century. With this quote as a starting point, MAfestival goes in search of diverse metamorphoses in music.
