Agamemnon by Aeschylus

Cyprus : Agamemnon by Aeschylus

The renowned Lithuanian director, Cezaris Graužinis, with an outstanding group of actors and artists, directs the first part of Aeschylus’ trilogy, Oresteia, Agamemnon and creates a performance about the origins and future of human violence. King Agamemnon returns to Argos, shortly after the end of the Trojan War. He triumphantly marches into the city and his palace, flaunting the Trojan princess and Apollo priestess Cassandra, as his spoils of war. Clytemnestra welcomes her husband, with effusive praise and honors, however it is quickly revealed that her enthusiasm conceals a well-orchestrated plan. She has decided to take revenge for the murder of their daughter, Iphigenia, sacrificed by Agamemnon to get the Greek ships afloat over ten years ago. The red carpet she rolls out for Agamemnon’s return foreshadows the impending bloodbath, when she and her accomplice/lover, Aegisthus, murder the king and his concubine.
