A collaboration performance 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, a satyr 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
