PLOT

Agamemnon

The tragedy opens the “Oresteia” trilogy. In the palace of Argos, a system of fires warns that Troy has fallen. The return of Agamemnon is anxiously awaited, preceded by a herald who narrates the toils of war and the exhausting return.
Clytemnestra has been long preparing the murder of her husband, who had sacrificed her eldest daughter. Agamemnon enters the scene with his concubine Cassandra, who prophesies the imminent regicide without being believed. She is slaughtered together with the king by Clytemnestra, who seizes power alongside her lover Aegisthus.

The Libation Bearers/Eumenides

Orestes, son of Agamemnon, returns after ten years to Argos and its palace, where the throne is usurped by the murderers of his father: his mother Clytemnestra and her lover Aegisthus. On the tomb of the assassinated king, he meets handmaids who pour libations, the Coefore (libation bearers), together with his sister Electra.Invoked with them protection by the murdered king, Orestes first kills Aegisthus and then his mother. Clytemnestra’s furious bitches, 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, who are 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 in which jurors will have to decide whether to acquit or condemn Orestes.Thanks to Athena’s vote, which is worth double, Orestes is acquitted, and the Erinyes adapt to the new course, becoming Eumenides (the benevolent).
