Students and teachers of seven European art universities (Brussels, Rome, Florence, Târgu Mureș, Krakow, Zagreb, and of course Budapest) joined for a two-week Erasmus intensive programme at the Liszt Academy of Music to work on the stories of Ovid. Previously selected ten stories from Ovid's Metamorphosis inspired ten international composition students, their pieces are going to be staged by international directors and drama students. During the workshop ten truly international groups of composition, instrumental and conductor students will learn the newly composed works, while the actors and the directors create the dramatic parts. At the closing gala on 4 July at 7 pm all ten dramatised pieces are performed in three acts. Orpheus, Pygmalion, Daphne, Callisto and others will come on stage to show how today's generation of art students see and interpret Ovid's eternal stories.
