The Oresteia

A Translation of Aeschylus’ Trilogy of Plays
By Ted Hughes
Directed by Anastasia Revi

Sacrifice. War. Victory. Troy has fallen. King Agamemnon returns a hero with his trophy- a Trojan priestess. Crimes weigh heavily on him. A sumptuous welcome awaits him. A trap. His wife, Clytemnestra, and her lover, his cousin Aegisthus – both want revenge for past crimes. Duty calls for exiled Prince Orestes to avenge his father and cease the raging curse of Atreus.

THE ORESTEIA is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England
