Center Theatre at Seattle Center


Wife. Mother. Exile. Medea abandons her home and country for Jason, the man she loves. When he discards her and their children for a new bride, the blow strikes deep into Medea’s heart. She transforms into concentrated white hot fury. Love smolders to hate then burns to revenge, driving her to savage acts. With their children caught in the crossfire, Medea scorches all and everything around her.

 

Please be advised: Medea contains off-stage murders, blood, high emotions, and discussions of infidelity and adultery.
