Details of The Rime Of Ancient Mariner and the Ticket Luck value
The Rime of Ancient Mariner is a poem, which was written in 1798 by the English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The long poem runs for six hundred and twenty six lines, telling the story of a seaman’s journey and the hardships he faces. Although the poem contains a few absurd elements, the theatrical representation of the poem has taken shape many times in the past. It inspired a song of the name from the rock metal band “Iron Maiden”. The poem cut a niche in the transition to modern poetry because of the poetic romanticism it illustrated.
The Rime of Ancient Mariner is being staged at the Brooklyn Academy of Music under the direction of Phyllida Lloyd. With films such as “Mama Mia!” and “The Iron Lady” included in her résumé, Phyllida Lloyd is more than capable of dealing with the supernatural story of The Rime of Ancient Mariner. This marvelous production, highlights Lloyd’s remarkable directing skills as she makes use of meagre costumes and an even simpler set, to convey the dread and gloom of the story. Helped by the omnipotent personality of Fiona Shaw on stage, Coleridge’s epic poem is brought to life. Devoid of fanciful visual effects, the play still manages to engross the audience in a chilling tale of penance and guilt. Watch the poem of enchantment and death with The Rime of Ancient Mariner tickets.
The poem introduces the audience to a mariner, who recounts his experiences to a guest making his way for a wedding. The wedding guest, initially impatient and irritated, listens to the whole tale with fascination, as it nears its end. The Mariner tells of the storm his ship encountered which throws them off route. In the isolation, an albatross flies above the ship, which the mariner impulsively shoots. Without having thought of the consequences of his actions, the mariner justifies the killing of the albatross, to the crew of the ship who are angered by his action. Little did the crew know that the albatross was a spiritual guide sent to safeguard the crew on their excursion.
Although the ship is rescued from the storm and the icy sea, the killing of the albatross results in the ship ending up in still waters. Their complete halt on the sea and personifications of death and life-in-death scenes make it interesting. The paranormal story begins to take a turn when the mariner realizes his actions and feels the burden of guilt. He carries the albatross around his neck, as a reminder of his deed. In an attempt to redeem himself, he searches for the hermit, to appease his conscience as more supernatural punishments are forced on him.
