Prometheus Bound (Sept. 5)
Sep 5, 2019 | 7:30 p.m.–9:30 p.m.
The Classical Greek Theatre Festival presents, for it 49th season, a new production of Aeschylus’ tragic masterpiece Prometheus Bound using a translation by William Matthews. Directed by Emilio Casillas, with set by Spencer Brown and costumes by Andrea Davenport, this ancient/modern production of Prometheus Bound tells of the fall of the Titan Prometheus at the hands of the newly crowned king of the gods, the Olympian Zeus. Bound to a rock at the bottom of a ravine in the far flung Caucasus, Prometheus is visited by the Oceanids - nymphs of the world’s many springs, their father Oceanus - the primordial world-encircling river, Io - the mortal woman loved by Zeus and harried by Hera, and finally by Hermes - the young Olympian chosen as the emissary of Zeus.
