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.

"One of my favorite things about LSSU is its size. The classrooms, especially as you get to the upper levels, get smaller, so you not only have a chance to discuss your ideas in an honest, supportive manner, but you also get to know your professors and classmates. The upper level courses really allow you to focus on what you love, and the small class size allows you to have time to share and to discuss your ideas."
