At Park Avenue Armory, New York
Due to the coronavirus crisis, all performances of Oresteia at Park Avenue Armory have been cancelled. The venue is currently rescheduling the production to a similar period in 2021.
The Almeida Box Office unfortunately holds no booking information for the New York production of Oresteia.
“Robert Icke’s extraordinary adaptation of Aeschylus’ Oresteia makes it feel as if you have electrodes wired into your soul”
Orestes' parents are at war. A family drama spanning several decades, Aeschylus' greatest play asks whether justice can ever be done, and continues to resonate more than two millennia after it was written.
Robert Icke brings his radically reimagined adaptation of Oresteia to the Park Avenue Armory, with Lia Williams reprising her Olivier Award-nominated role as Klytemnestra.
