More about Phaedra
"Strøm Reibo wishes to create a modern Phaedra. The costumes by Olav Myrtvedt are classic and modern at the same time. The music has been composed by one of Russia's best-known avant-garde musicians, Alexandr Manotskov, and the choreography is by Oleg Glusjkov, who has been under contract with the legendary Bolshoi Ballet, among others. In small musical interludes the actors, wearing masks, mime and dance a ballet discussing the myth of the Minotaur. It is a backdrop to the actions in Phaedra.
Phaedra is the woman who falls in love with her stepson, Hippolytus, at a time when her husband, King Theseus, is abroad, fighting a war. Jorunn Kjellsby has her last role as steadily employed at The Norwegian Theatre as Oenone. Kjellsby had her first role at 15 in 1959, but was hired in 1977 and has worked for the theatre in 37 rich years.
When Phaedra gets to know that Theseus is dead, she goes to Hippolytus to tell him about her feelings. At the same time the country is thrown into an unpredictable political situation, ending with the crowning of Hippolytus as interim king, until Phaedra's son grows old enough to take over. Shortly after it becomes clear that Theseus is still alive. His return launches an avalanche of fatal misunderstandings."
