A Classic.

I know it's a classic and all, but my only gripe with Greek Tragedies are just how repetitive the wailing is. Of course this is critiquing something written a few thousand years ago, but it does get a bit insane to listen to such plight with no levity. The performance was well done, only a few stumbles here and there.
