*Dual Format Edition*

A mythical tale of love, betrayal and revenge, Medea is a fascinating collision of Freudian and Marxist themes from Italy's most controversial director. Adapted from the Euripides drama, Pasolini's disturbing vision of personal and national conflicts stars operatic legend Maria Callas, offering an extraordinary performance as the high priestess Medea, whose love is threatened by corrupt political ambition. Medea is a complex blend of classical mythology and contemporary social criticism.
