Chinese actors perform a European epic of humanity

In front of Chinese audiences, the work represents a bold and innovative attempt to use a cast dominated by Chinese actors to narrate a centuries-old epic of human nature on the European continent.

"Clytemnestra seems to be a vicious woman who kills her husband, but she is fighting to avenge her daughter against patriarchy and theocracy, which is admirable," said the heroine of Agamemnon Zhao Luokuang, who also cites the play's vivid humanity as its highlight. "Every character has his or her considerations. The play does not make value judgments, but gives the audience room to think".

The classic of Agamemnon gets a modern and international reinterpretation in China, allowing the work to touch the hearts of Chinese audiences. Both Sacrifice and Agamemnon emerged as a result of deep cultural communication and integration between China and Greece, adding profound cultural contributions to the performing arts.
