MEDEA BY MARC-ANTOINE CHARPENTIER (APR. 22-29, 2017 AT THE ELGIN THEATRE)
“fresh from its resounding success with Armide in Versailles, France, late last year, [Opera Atelier] has been invited back by Versailles director Laurent Brunner to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday with Medea.” – Toronto Star
Medea, the powerful princess, forsakes her family and country to assist her lover Jason in his quest for the golden fleece. When he betrays her, she exacts a dizzying vengeance of which only a sorceress could be capable.
