Description Les Arts Florissants brought their modern dress interpretation of Handel’s rarely performed musical drama to BAM in 2006. Despite its title, the work focuses more on Dejanira, Hercules’ grieving wife, who spirals into madness through various fits of jealousy and rage, and who inadvertently kills the husband she believes already dead.
