The Electra Legacy: a modern telling of Sophocles’ ancient Greek tragedy with a brilliant new music score, this is a tale of revenge, passion and crime. An oracle informs Orestes that he must return to Argos, find his sister Electra, and take rightful, bloody revenge against Clytemnestra and her lover Aegisthus. Epic in content and in style, the narrative was conceived with the choreographer’s eye.
