Iphigenia in Aulis by Euripides

Cyprus : Iphigenia in Aulis by Euripides

International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama 2019

Yannis Kalavrianos directs NTNG’s summer production, Iphigenia in Aulis by Euripides, in a new translation by Pantelis Boukalas and with Anthi Efstratiadou, the 2016 recipient of the Melina Mercouri theatre award, in the role of Iphigenia.

The Greek fleet ready to sail to Troy, remains stuck in Aulis as the wind has lulled. In order for the wind to blow, it is imperative to sacrifice Iphigenia, the daughter of the commander of the Achaeans, Agamemnon. Faced with a horrific dilemma, torn between his daughter and his people, Agamemnon nevertheless decides to proceed to the sacrifice, dismissing the pleas of his wife Clytemnestra, Iphigenia, Achilles, even his own brother, Menelaus. Iphigenia ultimately reconciles with her tragic fate and accepts her heroic death for her country’s sake. In Iphigenia in Aulis, the tension between the public and the private, the male and the female, the polis and the family, generates characters who do not hesitate to cross the line.
