'The Lost Echo, Barrie Dosky and Tom Wright's 2006 adaptation of Ovid's Metamorphoses for the Sydney Theatre Company, gave audiences and epic theatrical experience. It was epic in length, with its eight hours comprising four Acts of two hours; it was epic in scale using the twelve members of the Sydney Theatre Company's recently formed Actors Company, guest artist Paul Capsis, and a chorus of twenty-four second-year NIDA students.' (p. 102)
Elizabeth Hale provides a brief summary of each Act as an introduction to the suite of criticisms that follow.
