MEDEA by Euripides

MEDEA by Euripides

Wednesday, July 18│ Paphos Ancient Odeon

Euripides’ Medea, a tragedy that combines moral complexity with overwhelming emotional impact, is presented by Spectrum Theatre, a Hungarian theatre company based in Transylvania, Romania. In this superb tragedy, which deals with the last act of the passionate affair between Jason and Medea, Jason decides to leave his wife in order to marry the daughter of Creon, king of Corinth. Medea takes the cruelest revenge: she kills their two children. With a minimal scenography, the director Viola Török focuses, through speech, on the inner world of the dramatic persons, highlighting their soul. The use of music, inspired by traditional Hungarian folk songs, aims to combine the old with the contemporary, the diachronic values of morality, justice and Medea’s fight for revenge in a deceiving, unfair and cruel world.
