‘Ondine’ Comes to Hubbard Hall
The award-winning Theatre Company at Hubbard Hall will present French playwright Jean Giraudoux’s ‘Ondine,’ a tragicomic love story of knight and nymph, November 14 through December 8. The play spins the tale of Hans, a knight-errant who has been sent off on a quest by his betrothed. In the forest he meets and falls in love with Ondine, a water-sprite who is attracted to the world of mortal man. By turns comic, enchanting, and tragic, ‘Ondine’ is considered by some to be Giraudoux’s finest work. There will be 13 performances of ‘Ondine.’ November 14, pay what you will at an open rehearsal at 8 p.m., November 15, 16, 22, 23, 29, 30, and December 6 and 7, at 8 p.m.; November 17 and 24, December 1 and 8, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $22 for Hubbard Hall members, $25 for non-members and $15 for students and children, and are available at hubbardhall.org, or by calling 518-677-2495.
