Staging Classical Tragedy

Understanding Greek tragedy, not through post-Ibsenist, post-modernist, post-Method eyes but in terms of what the ancient playwright may have intended, requires going beyond the text to the staging. For the staging defines the relationship between chorus and actors, between actors and audience, and between playwright and play. Using the theatre at Epidauros as an example-it was built a century after the heyday of Greek classical theatre but is well preserved-this program identifies the physical parts of the acting space and, with specific reference to the Oresteia, shows how the plays would have been staged in Aeschylus' time.
