Productions » Agamemnon

Free adaptation of Stephen Berkoff’s Agamemnon, Ted Hughes’ Oresteia and Agamemnon by Aeschylus.

MITP, Valletta, March 2006
Directed by Paul Portelli

Aeschylus’ Agamemnon is the first part of a Greek trilogy which, along with Libation Bearers and Eumenides, tells the blood-soaked history of the House of Atreus.

Agamemnon, ruler of Argos, has promised his brother Menelaus that he will go and finally bring back Menelaus’ wife, Helen, who had been stolen by the young Trojan prince Paris. In order to placate the gods and try to ensure victory over the Trojans, Agamemnon sacrifices his daughter Iphigenia, incurring the wrath of his wife Clytemnestra.

She plots Agamemnon’s downfall on his return from successfully ending the Trojan Wars. The trail of blood does not end here.
