The myth of Philomela includes a tragedy that compels everyone who hears it. It holds a story of the most serious crimes that both sexes, the woman and the man can handle against each other. As the story is open to a wide variety of reading and interpretation, composers and librettists, as well as the artists of any kind are interested in the subject. The most important characteristics of the myth of Philomela are; the mortals, not the gods being as heroes and the sexual violence and rape at the center of the story. It tells of a woman who is raped by a man and then whose tongue is cut off so that she does not spell out the crime. The tragic story will end with the most severe revenge of Philomela and her sister who have suffered the most severe forms of sexual violence. The aim of the study is to analyze in depth the opera Philomela by James Dillon, who also wrote the libretto in the libretto. It was evaluated how rape was carried and shown on the opera stage. The result is interpreted withi n the context of the analysis and from different points of view
