Medea

The wonderful opera “Medea” makes its way to the stage of the London Coliseum and in doing so welcomes Sarah Connolly as a stand-out mezzo-soprano. The show will allow audiences the opportunity to witness the work of the acclaimed David McVicar whilst also re-exploring the famous Greek tragedy, inevitably with memorable results.

As well as Connolly, the performances will also feature a cast made up of Roderick Williams as Orontes and Jeffrey Francis as Jason.

Connolly, who plays the title character, appears in the production on the back of a successful career that has see her appear everywhere from the London Coliseum and Royal Opera House to the Birmingham Symphony Hall and beyond. It means that she has taken on roles in shows ranging from “La Clemenza di Tito” (also for McVicar) to “Der Ring”, among others.

But for “Medea” she tackles Greek legend as she portrays the sorceress that decides upon a horrible form of revenge on her unfaithful lover and those around him. Based upon the Jason and Medea myth, the story has been told in numerous ways over many centuries.

And now it comes to the London Coliseum in a year that also features “The Barber of Seville” and “Wozzeck”, among others, for a run beginning on Friday 15th February 2013.
