Synopsis

Act 1
Outside the palace of King Creon

Dirce is preparing for her wedding to Jason. However, with Medee's help, he had stolen the golden fleece and, in doing so, Medee had betrayed her family and established a relationship with him, the result of which was her two children. Although Jason had since abandoned Mde, she reappears and demands that he return to her. Jason refuses and Medee curses him, swearing vengeance.

Act 2
Inside the palace

Despairing, Medee is encouraged to leave the city by her slave, Neris. However, Creon appears and orders that Medee leave. She asks for one more day with her children and, after the king agrees, she appears to be calmer and gives Neris two wedding presents to take to her rival.

Act 3
Between the palace and the temple

Neris brings the two children out to where Medee is waiting. Sounds of lamentation are heard from within the palace and it is discovered that one of Medee's wedding presents has poisoned Dirce. An angry crowd gathers and Neris, Medee, and the children take refuge in the temple. The two women reappear with Medee grasping a blood-stained knife with which she has killed her two children. The temple, to which Medee returns, goes up in flames.
