A tale of betrayal and redemption featuring a cast of legends.

Euripedes brought unsurpassed psychological insight together with flawless control of the elements of myth in this tale about a family separated by war and reunited.

A king must betray his daughter for the sake of his people. The daughter, beautiful and innocent, confronts her fate with dignity and with grace.

The Trojan War is the setting for this dramatic story of a family torn apart by an oracle's prophecy and mended with a daughter's forgiveness.

She will move you with kindness, inspire you with strength. She has given this gift for over 2,500 years.
