"Alcestis" 2010 Archival Photos
The 40th Annual Classical Greek Theatre Festival Presents: Alcestis
“Behind every great man is an even greater woman.” The Fates have granted King Admetos the privilege of living past his time. But the gift comes at a price—he must find someone willing to take his place when Death comes to take him. His wife Alcestis, not wishing her children to be fatherless, volunteers to go in his stead. In a cowardly fashion, Admetos allows her to do so. Only after he admits his weakness does his friend Heracles come to the rescue. Euripides stunning tragicomedy explores the powerful themes of sacrifice and rebirth. Directed by Hugh Hanson with a new musical score by local composer Cathy Neff.
