story

Orestes, son of Agamemnon, returns after ten years to Argos and his palace, whose throne is usurped by the murderers of his father, that is, his mother Clytemnestra and her lover Egisto. On the tomb of the slain king he meets handmaids who pour libations for the dead, the Coefore, with their sister Electra.

Invoked with them the protection of the slain king, Orestes first kills Egisto and then his mother. The furious bitches of Clytemnestra, the Erinyes, relentlessly pursue him from Argos to Delphi, where the last act takes place. Apollo exits the temple, defending Orestes, in search of purification, against the Erinyes, excited by the ghost of the murdered queen. Orestes flees again, to Athens, where the goddess Athena entrusts the judgment on him to a new institution, a court whose jurors will have to decide whether to acquit or condemn Orestes.

Thanks to Athena’s vow, which is worth double, Orestes is acquitted and the Erinyes adapt to the new course, becoming Eumenides (the benevolent ones).
