Electra by Sophocles

Cyprus : Electra by Sophocles

Electra, the tragedy that represents the last and the most mature creative period of Sophocles, recounts the murder in the palace of Atreides, which reaches its peak with the matricide of Orestes. It’s about the tragedy of the release of man against fate. Electra stays alone to bring in the end the ‘catharsis’ which is taking place with the murder of Clytaemnestra and Aegisthus. She is a tragic heroine who sets off from the very first moment her passion to take revenge.

Through the language, the simple language of the translation, Electra by Sophocles finds her place in today’s society being more contemporary than ever. The tragedy cries for freedom and order in an era of disorder. No one is punished at the end of the play, neither the Gods nor Erynies interfere, the audience become the only judge of the two siblings.
