Oresteia Videos

In the Spring of 2012, the Carleton Players collaborated with the Semaphore Dance Company and the Classics Department on a production of Aeschylus' Oresteia, in a new adaptation by Rob Hardy. Students enrolled in Classics 224, Visualizing Greek Tragedy also were involved in the production. The videos below give a sense of how theater, dance and classroom investigation all came together in a memorable production.
