SUMMARY

Labours accomplished, the hero returns home to his anxious wife, Dejanira. Jubilation soon turns to bloodshed, however, as jealous suspicion corrupts even the strongest of loves.

Based on Sophocles’ tragedy, The Women of Trachis, and Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Handel’s musical drama offers an unflinching exploration of the timeless concerns of classical myth: the dangers of human error and the limits of fidelity.
