From his provincial childhood to his studies in Havana in the 1960s, the film follows Arenas as he strives to live openly as a homosexual and pursue his literary ambitions. Both struggles land him prison many times over the years until he decides he must leave his homeland for the United States and a new life.

  • Ted Hughes' Tales From Ovid

    The Jackie Liebergott Black Box Theatre
    See artsemerson.org for ticket pricing information

    ArtsEmerson: The World on Stage presents Tales from Ovid. Tales from Ovid shapes the myths that have been the basis for countless contemporary stories: stories of transformation, of transcendent passion, of gods and mortals locked in combat until that entanglement combusts into a new state of being. In Ted Hughes' muscular and robust retelling, which was awarded the Whitbread Prize in 1997, these myths are explored and exploded outward, and embodied in a vibrant new adaptation.
