THEODORAKIS, M.: Medea [Opera]


Add To Wish List + $29.69 ($32.99) - Out of stock

The original version of Theodorakis’ first lyric tragedy was completed in 1991 following three years of hard work. Meanwhile the composer has revised his opera several times, creating basically three versions of the same works. The material from "Medea" is therefore quite extensive. This recording is based on the last version from Meiningen.

Short Summery:
After Medea succeeded in killing her brother-in-law, Pelias, by trickery in order to avenge his deeds against her husband Jasons’s family, she was forced to flee to Corinth to King Creon with her husband and children, fearing revenge from the murdered man’s relatives. There Jason left Medea and married King Creon’s daughter in order to ensure a place of refuge for himself and the children. Out of passionate love for Jason and demoniac thirst for revenge, Medea concocts a horrible plan. Believing that it was the best way to avenge Jason’s unfaithfulness, she decides to kill her children. Although Medea is aware of her monstrous deed, she sticks firmly to her plan because she’s not able to rid herself of her feelings of rage and fury. With trickery, Medea succeeds in turning her plan into action: she pretends to be forgiving, but at the same time secures her exile and, through her children, sends Jason’s new wife a poisoned gown and a diadem as a wedding present. As she puts on the two, she’s consumed by fire. Then Medea kills her two children in order to triumph over Jason by presenting him with the corpses.
