About NT Live: Medea
The National Theatre in London will be presenting Ben Power’s adaptation of Euripides’ tragedy Medea in September. A classic from ancient Greece, the story of Medea tells the tale of Jason and his abandoned wife, Medea, who dramatically kills their two children in a desperate act of revenge after he moves and remarries.
Regarded as one of the ultimate tales of jealousy, betrayal and vengeance, Power’s version has been updated for contemporary audiences.
Featuring Helen McCrory as Medea, a choreographed chorus and music by Will Gregory and Alison Goldfrapp, this modern take focuses on the emotional struggle that the protagonist must negotiate while seeking retribution in the face of injustice.
