July 8 - August 16

Betrayal and revenge are at the core of many great dramas, but the story of Medea surely tops them all. As the wedding of Jason and Glauce approaches, scorned Medea refuses to accept that Jason, to whom she has given two children, has abandoned her. Medea will stop at nothing for revenge, and her shocking response to Jason’s infidelity sparks one of opera’s great finales. Don't miss this opportunity to see Cherubini's rarely performed version of Euripides's famous tragedy. Read a synopsis...
