Bacchaeby Euripides, Robin Robertson
Classic Greek tragedy concerns the catastrophe that ensues when the King of Thebes, Pentheus, imprisons Dionysus and attempts to suppress his cult. Full of striking scenes, frenzied emotion and choral songs of great power and beauty, the play is a fine example of Euripides' ability to exploit Greek myth to probe man's psychological makeup.
