ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

From a dark chapter of Greek Mythology, Medea is a powerful woman who bolsters the ambitions of her husband Giasone only to be betrayed and ultimately spurned. Her horrifying act of vengeance destroys everything – and everyone – that binds them. This visceral new production by the renowned actor and director Fiona Shaw offers a potent, modern telling of the myth stripped down to its shockingly recognizable emotional core. Eminent conductor Jane Glover leads an international cast and the Omaha Symphony in this co-production with Wexford Festival Opera.
