Presented at The Getty Villa in Pacific Pallisades, CA
Luis Alfaro, author of the explosive Oedipus el Rey, continues his brilliant reexamination of the Greek classics through a modern lens: Mojada is a breathtaking reimagining of Euripides’ Medea transported to East Los Angeles. Medea, a Mexican seamstress with extraordinary skill, is running from a past filled with betrayals. With husband Jason and their son in tow, old and new worlds collide in the City of the Angels. Tickets available beginning July 1 at Getty.edu.
A fable of revenge and redemption, the people of a Latin American village are reeling from the impact of a devastating civil war when a mysterious plague begins to ravage their children. An embittered doctor discovers that he could be their savior, but he must wrestle with his own soul to discover whether he wants to offer compassion or retribution.
