Abandoned by her husband, Medea seeks out and finds revenge, raising her hands against a universal value - her own children. Her tragic choice excites humanity from ancient times to the present. The text of Euripides from 431 BC comes to life in the new Greek translation of Georgi Gotchev and Petya Heinrich and in the virtuoso performance of 40 actors, musicians and children.

In the role of Medea you will see the unique Snezhina Petrova, which will provoke the boundaries of human and artistic nature!

Director Desislava Shpatova creates a unique world of images and feelings, in which the spatial decisions of the set designers Zina Gench and Hristina Dyakova come to life. The choreography is the work of Anna Pamuplova and the unique music is by Asen Avramov!
