The Oresteia




Far more than the story of murder and vengeance, the Oresteia serves as a dramatic parable of the evolution of justice and civilisation that is still powerful after 2,500 years

One of the founding documents of Western culture and the only surviving ancient Greek trilogy, this is one of the great tragedies of all time. The three plays portray the bloody events that follow the victorious return of King Agamemnon from the Trojan War.
Contains Agamemnon, Choephoroe and Eumenides
