Event Time and Date
Late in the 16th century, Queen Elizabeth I falls in love with the beauty of Orlando, a lovely boy of sixteen. He, in turn, falls passionately in love with an aristocratic Russian girl who appears to be a handsome boy. But love is fleeting, especially so as Orlando never ages and never dies. To complicate matters, romantic and otherwise, one fine morning in 17th century Constantinople, Orlando awakes to discover that he has become a she and must now adjust to living life as a woman– living and loving through the 18th to the 20th centuries. Our hero turned heroine seeks three not-so-simple things: love, the completion of her long poetic homage to an oak tree, and the meaning of life. Based on Virginia Woolf’s gender-hopping novel, Orlando: A Biography.
