WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Racine, the French Shakespeare, tells the tale of tragic love. Passion overpowers reason for Phedre, who has fallen lustfully in love with her stepson. Her shameless attraction is forbidden, incestuous, unstoppable. The drama that unfolds is a delicate balance of poetic beauty and tragedy.
