D'Euripide (431 AVJC) dans une traduction de Don Taylor (1990)

Résumé: The Greek fleet assembles in the bay of Aulis in readiness to launch an attack on Troy, but the wind suddenly drops and the ships stand idle. The army blame their leader who, in danger of losing his command, panics and jumps at a solution: to sacrifice his own daughter to the gods, in return for a favourable wind. Just how far will a leader go in order to save face and secure a military victory in the East?

Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Astonishing"; CHARLES SPENCER for DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Fresh, daring and stylish...This is an edgy, gripping and often brilliantly atmospheric production." PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Wonderfully edgy and mordant revival." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "Brilliantly imaginative, tense, powerful, and essentially true to the ageing Euripides." ALASTAIR MACAULAY for THE FINANCIAL TIMES says, "Katie Mitchell...might have seemed the right director for the task. But she stages the play as if both text and translation were inconvenient encumbrances." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "Hyperactive production that sometimes obscures the play's driving momentum. But, at its best, it brings home the situation's painful poignancy."
