Following the success of Rameau’s Castor And Pollux, ENO continues its pioneering exploration of French baroque operatic masterpieces with the first ever UK staging of Charpentier’s Medea.

Medea tells the story of the barbarian sorceress who, banished, betrayed and besieged on all sides, demands a terrible vengeance upon her faithless lover and all those he holds most dear.

Opera director David McVicar returns to ENO to rework one of the most enduringly disturbing of all the Greek myths, that of a mother who murders her own children.
