Greek plays online

Last term I wrote a review of the fantastic Cambridge Greek play, a tragedy/comedy double bill of Antigone and Lysistrata: now the production team have made some video highlights of both plays available online. Have a look at the video below!

The director of the last two Cambridge Greek Plays, Helen Eastman, also has a new project called ‘Barefaced Greek‘, whose aim is to create short videos of extracts from ancient Greek drama in the original Greek (with subtitles). The first video is a wonderful version of the opening of Aeschylus’ tragedy ‘Agamemnon’: a watchman stands on the roof of the palace of Mycenae, waiting to spot the beacon flame that will announce that the Greeks have taken the city of Troy and are returning home. I’m looking forward to seeing lots more of these!
