Fedra is a modern retelling of the classic myth of Phaedra, freely inspired by the poems of Ghiannis Ritzos and opera by Hippolytus of Euripides. In a time without time, in the wild and sunny island of Stromboli, Phaedra is overwhelmed by memories in her home: the day of her arrival and subsequent marriage to Theseus, the welter of the dances and the look of her beautiful son, Hippolytus, a child from a previous marriage.
