UPDATE: Open Dress Rehearsal--Wednesday, November 2nd, 8:00 PM, Davenport-Pierson Auditorium. All students are invited to attend!
"Persians" is the earliest surviving work of Western theater - a tragedy in which Aeschylus imagined the Persian response to their defeat by the Greeks in the Battle of Salamis. It remains an eloquent work about the individual and social struggle with grief and defeat.
This will be the first presentation of the final draft of Professor Stratos Constantinidis' new translation of "Persians." The production will take place as part of a Cultures of the Classical workshop, which is being held during the afternoon on Friday, November 4th.
The show will be a great opportunity for a small cast to work with a challenging and exciting text. We'll be playing with masks, rituals, and exploring a range of theatrical styles to find how best we can express this enduring and powerful work.
