About the Production:

Iphigenia in Aulis was translated by respected classics scholar and Court Founding Artistic Director Nicholas Rudall and updated for the 2014 production at The Court Theatre in Chicago.

Iphigenia in Aulis tells the story of the Greek general Agamemnon, who sets a course westward to begin what will become known as the infamous Trojan War and is stranded with his fleet in the middle of the Mediterranean. The goddess Artemis has killed the winds, and the only way for Agamemnon to appease her and win glory in Troy is to offer an impossible sacrifice: his own daughter.
