starring Annette Bening


Music by Lian Ensemble
directed by Lenka Udovicki

World Premiere produced by UCLA Live

Annette Bening stars in a new interpretation of Euripides’ classic about the passionate and destructive affair between the mortal Greek hero Jason and the mystical and exotic Medea. Lenka Udovicki, who has directed theater and opera around the world, incorporates classical elements, such as a 12-woman chorus and on-stage musicians, into this stylized modern staging produced by UCLA Live. Written for an Athenian audience that was at the height of its Golden Age, “Medea” remains a potent critique of power.
