"You have yet to learn what it means to weep, wait until you grow old"
A woman at the height of her maturity, strength, intelligence and beauty who has done unmentionable things for the love of a man, bares her soul in order to find the words to describe the acts she will carry out in order to reap revenge on this man who now denies her his love. Aitana Sánchez-Gijón is surrounded by a choir of children, whose pathos leads her to murder.
"There is no greater pain than love", Medea declares. Seneca states that if this is the case ... what can we do? Have we not all felt this at some time? Medea means daring; Medea rubs her whole hand in our wounds and presents us with our own fears or, rather, our pain. Or in other words, if pain is a sign of life, she presents us with our lives. That is why I fear Medea and, yet, I cannot but watch. Medea is so contrary to Seneca's idea of virtue and yet she is so attractive to the author". Andrés Lima
