Description: The play opens as the Watchman at King Agamemnon's palace sees the beacon announcing the fall of Troy. The Chorus of Old Men tell the background to the story of the Trojan War. When Agamemnon returns home after a 10-year absence at the Trojan War, his queen, Clytemnestra, welcomes him be Cassandra (daughter of the vanquished Trojan king Priam and now Agammenon's captive mistress) foretells his murder. The murder of Agamemon will be a double revenge: Clytemnestra will avenge their daughter Iphigenia, sacrificed by Agamemnon to secure a favorable wind toward Troy; Aegistuhus, Clytemnestra's lover, will avenge the murder of his brothers by Agamemnon's father. This is the origin of the blood feud that runs through Agamemnon, Choepori, and Eumenides.
