The Trojan Women "Pre-Talk"
Start Date: 4/17/2014Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Date: 4/17/2014End Time: 7:30 PM

Event Description
Join Associate Professor of Classics Ortwin Knorr for a lively discussion about The Trojan Women immediately prior to that evening's performance. 

Ancient Greek tragedy was a much more exotic art form than most people who ever watched a Greek play performed on a modern stage realize. By introducing you to ancient Greek performance practices, the contemporary political background, and the modern scholarly debates surrounding Euripides' The Trojan Women, this pre-show presentation will sharpen your senses for the continued relevance of the questions this play first posed to an Athenian audience in 415 BCE.
