From the Getty site:
“This open-air staging by acclaimed director Stephen Wadsworth resurrects Aeschylus’ unsettling domestic drama of The House of Atreus, heard in a riveting translation by the late Robert Fagles. The victorious Agamemnon arrives home with his surviving troops after the bloody battle for Troy. As the drama unfolds, a returning soldier bears witness to unthinkable carnage, a city questions the wisdom of the decade-long war, and a family turns the violence of war in on itself. Tickets $38; $32 students/seniors. (Previews $15).”
This exhibit juxtaposes the glamour and underbelly of Los Angeles, demystifying the idea of Southern California paradise with photographs of the LA Times bombing and the deadened eyes of a woman in curlers working in the Adult Film Industry.
