ANCIENT THEATRE OF EPIDAURUS / EPIDAURUS
AgamemnonAgamemnon by Aeschylus, directed by Ulrich Rasche, is presented at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus on July 22nd – 23rd 2022.
In the first chapter of Aeschylus’ Oresteia trilogy, Agamemnon’s homecoming signals a new, bloody chapter of violence when he is murdered by his wife, Clytemnestra. Ulrich Rasche, one of the most exciting new German directors, is noted for his unusual and impressive scenic language. His actors are often driven towards a deeply existential and “manic” style of performance, combining text, movement, and rhythm. Audiences will be captivated by a breathtaking production, a well-orchestrated choreography performed on mechanical revolving stages to the sounds of live contemporary music.
