Fagles translations to be performed
Posted December 19, 2000; 01:55 p.m.
Translations of ancient Greek dramatists by Robet Fagles, the Arthur Marks '19 Professor of Comparative Literature, are being produced by the American Repertory Theatre(ART) in Cambridge, Mass., and the Berkeley, Calif. Repertory Theatre.
Over the years, Fagles' works have been performed primarily on college and university campuses. Fagles regards the move to more public venues as an extra bonus.
At the ART, Fagles' 1982 translation of Sophocles' "Antigone" opened the season with previews Nov. 24. The play runs through Jan. 17 at the Loeb Drama Center in Cambridge. His 1975 translation of Aeschylus' "The Oresteia" will inaugurate the Berkeley Rep's new 600-seat theater when it opens March 14. The trilogy is scheduled to run through May 6.
