    In The Oresteia, Aeschylus dramatizes the myth of the curse on the royal house of Argos. The action begins when King Agamemnon returns victorious from the Trojan War, only to be treacherously slain by his own wife. It ends with the trial of their son, Orestes, who slew his mother to avenge her treachery - a trial with the goddess Athena as judge, the god Apollo as defense attorney, and, as prosecutors, relentless avenging demons called The Furies.

    Tad Davis says: "Great production, Ian Johnston translation"
    "If better time can be spent.."

    What did you love best about The Oresteia?

    ..than a walk with this production taking desultory interludes from this magical inner theater to enjoy the lovely surroundings I know not of it


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Oresteia?

    there are so many, but if forced to choose one, I would say Cassandra's scene for Agamemnon, The murder of Clytemnestra for The Libation Bearers, and, of course, the Trial in Eumenides.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Soap Opera for eggheads
