explores the notions of sacrifice, heroism, love and the supernatural forces of the mythological gods in a story of a daughter, Iphigenia, who is prepared to die for her father, Agamemnon, and his country. The panorama of emotion, both domestic and epic, is reflected through Iphigenia, whose total acceptance of her fate and obedience to the command of her father and the gods with calm, steadfast exaltation, is the focus of this powerful opera. Sung in French with English supertitles. New production.Performers Veronica Cangemi (Iphigenia), Jonas Degerfeldt (Achille), Gerald Finley (Agamemnon), Katarina Karneus (Clitemnestre), Clive Bayley (Calchas), Marie Arnet (Diane).
