14 Jul 2012 — 20 Jul 2012
This unique collaboration between The Royal Ballet and the National Gallery is a highlight of the London 2012 Festival. It brings together new choreography, music, poetry and visual arts.

A multi-faceted experience celebrating British creativity across the arts, ‘Metamorphosis: Titian 2012’ brings together a group of specially commissioned works responding to three of Titian’s paintings – Diana and Actaeon, The Death of Actaeon and the recently acquired Diana and Callisto – which depict stories from Ovid’s epic poem ‘Metamorphoses’. The three paintings, displayed at the heart of the exhibition, will be seen together for the first time since the 18th century.

About ‘Metamorphoses’

Roman poet Ovid’s (43 BC–17 AD) 15 book poem was written in Latin and features the story of Diana, which inspired Titian’s three great paintings. Based on the theme of ‘change’ (‘Metamorphoses’ means ‘transformations’ in Greek), these mythical tales were as renowned in Titian’s day as Bible stories, and were a popular source of inspiration for many Renaissance artists.
