Synopsis

Virginia Woolf’s Orlando is a story of a man who turnes into a woman; who lives for over 350 years without getting old. It begins in 16th-century England and ends there in the early 20th century.

Christian Spuck

Prologue

16th century. Orlando is a charming, melancholic, aristocratic 16-year-old adolescent.

Young Orlando in his solitude. He loves nature, solitary places, and vast views. He wants ‘to feel himself for ever and ever and ever alone’. He writes and contemplates nature.
