Storyteller Daniel Morden Discusses His Craft

Breathing life into ancient tales is both a challenge and an art. Master storyteller Daniel Morden, who performs this weekend at the Getty Villa, has perfected it. His passion and zeal for classic stories—at the Villa, selections from Ovid’s Metamorphoses and scenes from the Trojan War—are unmatched. This isn’t your high school literature class. Put the textbook down and let Daniel Morden tell you a story.

Curious? See Morden discuss his art and perform highlights from Metamorphoses accompanied by cellist Sarah Moody in the video below.

      Head flasks were a trend starting in the 1st century A.D.

      A little taller than 6 inches, this young man’s head could be filled with any liquid.
