Conference essentials

The story of the sacrifice of Iphigenia, as told by the ancient tragedians Aeschylus and Euripides, has been repeatedly retold over the centuries. This international, interdisciplinary conference brings together scholars and practitioners to explore some of these retellings in a range of media. Conference participants will have the opportunity to attend a rare screening of the 1990 BBC production of Euripides’ Iphigenia at Aulis.

Held under the auspices of CADRE (Centre for Ancient Drama and its Reception). 

Topics include: ancient visual representations; Lady Lumley; Racine; Italian opera; de la Touche; Gluck; HD; Cacoyannis; Mike Carey.
