The Bacchae tells the story of the god Dionysus, the son of Zeus and the mortal woman, Semele. Semele died before Dionysus was born after Zeus appeared to her in his true form and she was burned to ash. Her family rejected Dionysus and said that Semele was pregnant by another man, not by Zeus and was killed for her promiscuity. Dionysus, the god of wine, fertility and prophecy, travels to his mother’s home, the city of Thebes, with his followers, the Bacchants, and proceeds to wreak his terrible vengeance on his family and the city.
