The Oresteia

T0801259000
A man is faced with the choice of killing his daughter or losing a war. Driven by personal ambition, he brutally murders his child and, in doing so, unleashes a chain of vengeance that rips through his family and community. When he returns home victorious, his wife murders him, and their son in turn, murders her. Social order collapses, tyranny triumphs and the 'daughters of darkness' burst out of the bowels of the earth demanding that the son's crime be avenged. Finally the son is put on trial and in the tense and highly charged atmosphere of the courtroom, the story reaches its climax. But can the court stop further bloodshed and break the cycle of vengeance?
Author Aeschylus
