What would you do when the love you’ve sacrificed your world for betrays you? In 1896, deep in the heart of New Orleans genteel creole society, a young woman of privilege finds herself mired by the men and social demands that govern her life. With headstrong disobedience and a gift for the power of voodon she finds her escape in managing the love affairs of others. When an ambitious sea captain passes through town, she discovers her own all-consuming love. Together they chart the waters of their romance to the burning streets of Chicago’s First Ward with a trail of blood along the way. Inspired by the life of Marie Laveaux and adapted from Euripides The Medea, this rarely-produced musical by Michael John LaChiusa explores at what it means to love unconditionally and culminates in incomprehensible vengeance when that love is betrayed.
