Quick Overview

Welcome to Mount Olympus! And what a welcome the Muse Calliope has for you! And why shouldn't she? This is her home, her favorite place, where all her relatives and friends live. Actually, what's been most difficult for Calliope is choosing which tales to include because there are so many! A few of her choices: the fateful wedding of Thetis and Peleus (what joy, but oh what misery this union caused), almost-impossible love of Cupid for Psyche (with a future mother-in-law who takes the prize for being conniving), and the almost-ones (those not chosen to be among the celebrated 12 mighty Olympians but who were pretty great on their own). As a special treat, Calliope will retell the Batrachomyocmachia-now that's a mouthful - and actually the characters in the play are mostly frogs and mice!
