    The effeminate Pentheus, stripped of his masculinity and authority, is revealed as a vain, boastful and lecherous creature. Dionysus appears above the palace, now in full glory as a god. Chorus He comes to you, Dionysos, with evil intent, with an unjust mind, there he comes to your mystic rites and to those of your mother. A messenger arrives to report that once the party reached Mount Cithaeron, Pentheus wanted to climb an evergreen tree to get a better view and the stranger used divine power to bend down the tall tree and place the king in its highest branches.

    That will teach him to make those dreadful threats of his. Come, run with me. Cadmus speaks with her gently, trying to help her return from the madness of the god. Audacity, strength and eloquence all on their own, make for a bad citizen — a stupid one.

    The libretto was by W. Blessings, blessings to the blessed God, with Phrygian shouts and cries, when the sweet-voiced sacred flute plays loud songs in harmony as they travel up the mountain, that mountain. That will teach him to make those dreadful threats of his. He has heard that there is a priest who is at the center of the new religion, and Pentheus intends to have the man captured and possibly executed: the audience knows that this priest is Dionysus himself, disguised as a mortal.

Bacchae book

Dionysos Hold it! Pentheus questions Dionysos to trap him with logic, but true to form, Dionysus responds with riddles.

Your skin is lovely and white because you take good care of it, I see. Dionysos is in those ruins! You who nurtured Semele, Adorn yourselves richly with branches of bryony And dance wildly with branches of fir and oak!

Your mind is a bit… flighty at the moment and so, no matter what you put your mind to, you comprehend nothing. But believe me, young Pentheus! Give me the thoughts and deeds of the common folk. I nurture it for the god. Dionysos Look here!

He has denounced the new religion. Chorus He comes to you, Dionysos, with evil intent, with an unjust mind, there he comes to your mystic rites and to those of your mother. You see our grey hair and you think we must be mad but we shall dance! The men escaped, but their cattle were not so fortunate, as the women fell upon the animals, ripping them to shreds with their bare hands.

He has also driven the women of Thebes, including his aunts, into an ecstatic frenzy, sending them dancing and hunting on Mount Cithaeronmuch to the horror of their families.
