Last night, previews for MEDEA; a Tragedy of Revenge opened. The actors were stretched, the lights were focused, the costumes were starched, the audience was perched on their seats... and off we went!
It was a wonderful opening. You could feel the tension in the room... the audience not moving, listening for every word, watching and letting the story flow along. Medea raged, Jason pleaded, the Nurse predicted, Creusa mistook, Glauce struggled, and the Chorus Leader witnessed. The women sang in beautiful harmony about the horrors they saw, and the notes floated above the intensity of Medea's wrath.
