Medea by Euripides

Cyprus : Medea by Euripides

International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama
MIKHAIL CHEKHOV RIGA RUSSIAN THEATRE – LATVIA

The Mikhail Chekhov Riga Russian Theatre (RRT), one of the oldest Russian theatres in the world outside Russia, founded in 1883, presents Medea by Euripides, directed by Vladislav Nastavšev, one of Latvia’s most prominent directors and composers.

In this masterly tragedy, which deals with the last act of the passionate affair between Jason and Medea, Jason decides to abandon his wife in order to marry the daughter of the king of Corinth. Medea takes the cruelest revenge: she kills their two children. With Medea, which combines moral complexity with overwhelming emotional impact, Euripides has succeeded in creating not only one of the most powerful figures in all Greek literature, but also one of its greatest tragic dramas. The fascination of bright, sharp and passionate myths has not been fading for more than two thousand years.
