After the huge success of Les Damnés (The Damned), acclaimed stage director Ivo van Hove comes together again with the Troupe of the Comédie-Française for an epic House of Atreus saga. Merging two ancient Greek tragedies by Euripides, he tells the story of a brother Orestes, and a sister, Electra, united in crime and vengeance against their no-less criminal mother Clytemnestra and step-father Aegisthus.

Preceded by an introduction by actor Christophe Montenez in discussion with award-winning theatre critic Matt Trueman
