A performance collaboration by Carleton Players and Semaphore Repertory Dance Company Aeschylus' Oresteia (Ὀρέστεια) is a trilogy of Greek tragedies which concerns the end of the curse on the House of Atreus. When originally performed it was accompanied by Proteus, asatyr play that would have been performed following the trilogy; it has not survived. The term "Oresteia" originally probably referred to all four plays, but today is generally used to designate only the surviving trilogy. For reservations go to Tixato
