Chicago Stage Review - Recommended
"...The two stories do have one interesting, macabre detail in common. As Hercules meets his doom by way of a robe infused with poison, so Medea exacts revenge on her romantic rival. But Creuse’s death alone is not enough to satisfy Medea’s unfathomable rage. As she prepares to sweep out of Corinth she delivers a final, devastating blow to her unfaithful husband – one that will change her own life forever."

"...Christian Curnyn, a rising star in the early-music constellation, conducts the superb Baroque Band, a period-instrument orchestra of impeccable quality, in a score that abounds with sensuous instrumental interludes. The cold and ruined set by Francois-Pierre Couture may be dark and dour but the sounds you’ll hear will transport you to Versailles and make you feel like a king."

"...Well, COT’s Medea has tons of mojo. More’s the pity that there are only three more performances before it closes–run, do not walk, to see them."
