Troy: After and Before

Aeschylus' Agamemnon and Euripides' Iphigenia at Aulis. Two very different versions of the Trojan War, both set at the intersection of international politics and family values -- one focused on the war's bloody aftermath, the other on its hopeful if equally bloody beginnings.

Agamemnon (90 min) takes place in Argos, in front of the King’s palace, ten years after the start of the Trojan War. Iphigenia in Aulis (75 min) takes place ten years earlier, as the Greek army awaits a good wind to set sail for Troy.

There will be a fifteen minute intermission between the plays.
