IPHIGENIA AMONG THE TAURIANS

Iphigenia was actually not sacrificed in Aulis by Agamemnon but was saved by Artemis whom she now serves as a priestess in the goddess’ temple at Tauris where her brother Orestes and his friend Pylades come to rob the temple.

 

DAUGHTERS OF TROY

One of the best antiwar plays ever written, it reflects Euripides’ disillusionment of Athenian democracy, borrowing events from the Trojan War just after the stratagem of the Trojan Horse,  when Troy fell to the Greeks.
