Ondine is strange, my lord. You saw her tonight in the storm. It’s not that she’s in the storm. She is the storm. There is more than beauty in Ondine. There is power.

When Hans and Ondine meet, the worlds of a mortal man and a magical creature of the water collide dangerously and Ondine is forced to make an inexorable pact which changes their lives forever.
Should he betray her, he must die and, along with her time on earth, be erased completely from her memory for her to return to the world of the lake forever.
Powerfully in love with a mortal man and fascinated by the world of humans, Ondine is warned by the creatures of the lake that no man can endure the all-consuming love of an immortal being.
Ondine is believed to have been Giraudoux’s finest work. The play as adapted by Maurice Valency, opened on Broadway in 1954 in a production by Alfred Lunt with a cast including Audrey Hepburn-in the role that made her a star. Ondine won the 1954 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play. The London premiere of Ondine was presented by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1961.
The White Bear and Lost in the Dark presents this enduring magical tale of tragic love directed by Cat Robey.
