The action starts with the death of Hippolytus, remembered by his stepmother Phaedra. While the bright afternoon goes down, Phaedra is all alone, and obsession, repentance, guilt and innocence arise from her soul searching still the gaze of her stepson, Hippolytus. Like her beloved sweetheart’s eyes, the memories also run away towards obscurity, while melting with shame and desire coming in unison inside Phaedra’s body. Her last words, full of a desolate passion and despair, are directed to the loving memory of her impossible love for Hippolytus.
