Orestea 1

The complete Orestes trilogy (Agamemnon, The Libation Bearers and The Eumenides) comes directly from Syracuse with a classical spirit and a contemporary format, directed by Luca de Fusco. The three plays are presented in two performances that can be seen on the same day or on two different days.

One of the greatest theatrical masterpieces of all time, and the only Greek trilogy to have survived in its entirety, is brought to the stage by a large company. Only one of the texts of the Oresteia is usually performed. We are performing it in its entirety in two consecutive performances, without neglecting the characteristics of Greek theatre, which bring together words, song and dance. As a result, on the one hand we have a highly classical play, but on the other, a very contemporary dramatization which brings up to date the style of theatre/video we explored in Vestire gli ignudi, Antigone and Antony and Cleopatra, and continues our collaboration with the choreographer Noa Wetheim of the Vertigo Dance Company, which with its music and its dance contributes to making this a spectacle of total theatre.
