Abstract:

A contemporary interpretation of Jason's quest for the Golden Fleece, this program scrutinizes what is colloquially referred to as the battle of the sexes. The production convincingly re-creates the world of the Bronze Age, but commentary from modern scholars evokes themes easily recognizable in the 21st century: Who holds the real power in male/female relationships? Why are women so often objects of male fear as well as desire? How heroic is a classical male protagonist if he constantly needs female assistance? Jason and the Argonauts explores these subjects with the vitality of the ancient story itself.
