Event Details

Opera Screening

Luigi Cherubini was an Italian-born composer who lived most of his adult life in Paris. He skilfully navigated the radically changing tastes in music and politics in those years and in his day, was greatly admired by Haydn, Beethoven, Rossini and Chopin. With its world premiere taking place at the iconic Théâtre Feydeau, Paris, in 1797, Cherubini’s Medea is a fiery retelling of a seminal Greek myth. Medea is as compelling as it is disturbing, never more so than when the title character enacts her revenge on her unfaithful lover by taking the lives of their two children. Cherubini composed the opera at the tail end of the French Revolution, and as such, it fills a musical and dramatic gap between the noble gravitas of 18th-century theatre and the more visceral beauty of later Romantic operas.
