It’s one for my baby and one more for the road in this cocktail of jazz standards and storytelling. Tragedy, with a twist.
Phaedra is one of the classic tragic heroines of Greek theatre, cursed by Aphrodite to fall madly, truly, deeply in love with her stepson. Her story has been told by Euripides, Seneca, Racine and more and is the subject of many famous artworks over the centuries.
She even has a psychological condition (unfairly) named after her, ‘The Phaedra Complex’. But you’ve not heard her tragedy like this before, complete with a twist at the end.
It’s a classic story backed up by some classy jazz standards, and tasty cocktails.
