The unmissable acclaimed masterpiece
Oresteia is brought to you from the Almeida Theatre - a venue renowned for introducing ground-breaking, critically acclaimed transfers to the West End. Following Chimerica, Ghosts, King Charles III and 1984, Oresteia is their most recent exhilarating theatrical feat.
A huge, moving, bloody saga, the original of all family dramas, Aeschylus' greatest and final play asks whether justice can ever be done?
Part Godfather, part Breaking Bad, this new reimagined version of the epic Greek saga is the unmissable event of the year.
Directed by Robert Icke (Mr. Burns; 1984) and starring Lia Williams (Old Times; Earthquakes in London) as Klytemnestra and Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey) as Electra.
