Medea, by Opera Atelier (Photo: Bruce Zinger)
This opera – the most profound example of French lyric theatre in the 17th century – is a stunning French baroque masterpiece about love, betrayal and revenge. Medea, the powerful sorceress of Greek myth, betrays her country and her family in order to assist her lover Jason in his quest for the Golden Fleece. When she is no longer of use to him, Jason abandons her for a prestigious political marriage. In so doing, Jason has vastly underestimated Medea’s power, and she exacts a terrible vengeance that envelops everyone closest to his heart.
