Agamemnon
Trinity University Theatre presents the classic Greek tragedy AGAMEMNON from Feb. 16 - 24 in the Stieren Theatre. This production features a new translation by Trinity Classics Professor Dr. Thomas Jenkins.

In the first tragedy of Aeschylus' foundational trilogy "The Oresteia," the king Agamemnon arrives home triumphant after Greek armies conquer Troy, slaughter its citizens, and desecrate the city's temples. The royal Trojan priestess Cassandra, captured and enslaved as Agamemnon's concubine, is cursed by the god Apollo to see the House of Atreus' terrible future but to find no one who will believe her prophecy. As she and a chorus of old men helplessly watch the plot unfold, the queen Clytemnestra, seething from her husband's sacrifice of their daughter, orchestrates her bloody revenge.

AGAMEMNON performs Fri/Sat at 8 pm, Sun at 2:30 pm, and Wed/Thur at 7 pm. Run time of the performance is approximately 80 minutes.

Admission is free with seating limited to 100 audience members per show in the Stieren Theatre.

Note: Due to demand, we will honor reservations until 10 minutes before showtime. At that time, we will begin seating audience members on the waitlist.

Thu 2/22  A Talkback featuring Dr. Kyle Gillette, the director, Dr. Thomas Jenkins, the translator, and cast/crew members will follow the performance in the Stieren.
