Euripides' Medea

  • Her Majesty's Theatre 17 Lydiard Street south Ballarat (map)

Ballarat National Theatre continues to offer the very best in contemporary community theatre. BNT are staging a very modern telling of this Greek classic complete with live music and a very unique and colourful set.

Adults $25 Concession $20 Members $18 Groups 10+ $18.  * ‘Save Her Majesty’s’ fundraiser performance

Medea, a foreigner, who deceived her father and killed her brother to help her husband Jason win the Golden Fleece, now finds herself betrayed by him in favour of a new union with the King’s daughter. But hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Megan J Riedl's modern interpretation of the ancient Greek classic features powerhouse performances by local actors and specially composed live music. Haunting in its brutality and how it captures the very extreme of human emotions, BNT's Medea explores the dangers a patriarchal view on strong women and the negative impact of parental conflict on children.
