2005 IPHIGENIA IN AULIS
The 35th Annual Classical Greek Theatre Festival
Directed by Larry West
Richard Scharine as Agamemnon
& Barbara Smith as Clytemnestra
Iphigenia at Aulis is Euripides' compelling story of King Agamemnon who is torn between his love of family and his commitment to war. Deceiving his wife and daughter, he implores them to come to Aulis with his promise of Iphigenia's marriage to Achilles, when, in reality, she will be slain by her father in the interest of the upcoming Trojan War. Iphigenia at Aulis is a story of personal versus political sacrifice.
