Profile

This modern adaptation of the Greek play by Sophocles is presented in an excitingly unconventional format: Audiences will don headphones, with narration and dialogue piped in, and walk from scene to scene outdoors in Annette Strauss Square. In the grand tradition of ancient Greek tragedies, Electra is propelled by bloody action and revenge, a cycle in this case begun by Agamemnon's sacrifice of his daughter before the Achaen invasion of Troy.
