In this innovative rendition of The Oresteia, the poet, translator, and essayist Anne Carson combines three different visions—Aischylos’ Agamemnon, Sophokles’ Elektra, and Euripides’ Orestes—giving birth to a wholly new experience of the classic Greek triumvirate of vengeance. After the murder of her daughter Iphegenia by her husband Agamemnon, Klytaimestra exacts a mother’s revenge, murdering Agamemnon and his mistress, Kassandra. Displeased with Klytaimestra’s actions, Apollo calls on her son, Orestes, to avenge his father’s death with the help of his sister Elektra.

Here comes a fine recording of Mendellsohn's late Incidental Music to Oedipus (first performed in 1845). For those who do not know this great tragety by Sophokles it must be noted that this is "Oedipus in Colonus" and should not be confused with "Oedipus Rex" where King Oedipus tried to discover who is the man who killed his father and married his mother bringing misfortune to Thebes, but finally realizes that it was he who did it. His mother/wife, Iocasta hangs herself, he gets blind and becomes an outcast by his brother-in-law, Creon.
