When one of the swans turns into a beautiful young woman he is instantly captivated – will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under? From the impressive splendour of the palace ballroom to the moonlit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all. *Swan Lake* captures, like no other, the full range of human emotions – from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy.

Medea Warwick Classics Society presents *Medea*. Known to many as the most tragic piece of ancient Greek theatre, Euripides’ Medea explores love, loss, betrayal, and the consequential revenge of its eponymous heroine, Medea. Medea, deeply in love with Jason, has abandoned her family and native land of Colchis and moved with him to Greece - with no possibility of return. When the play opens, Jason has broken his vows of loyalty and love to her and has instead turned to marry the King of Corinth’s daughter. These events spark a rage within Medea, and although others attempt to calm her anger, her heart does not waver: she must avenge this shattered promise. ]]>
