Freely Adapted and Directed from the "Electra" of Sophocles by Kevin Moriarty
|Electra’s mother murdered her father, and Electra just can’t let it go. With the return of her brother Orestes, the siblings seek justice… or is it vengeance? Lust, murder, and fury explode in this tale of familial betrayal. Building on DTC’s breathtaking approaches to Greek tragedies (Oedipus el Rey, Medea), expect the unexpected in this one-of-a-kind production that will take the audience on a journey through the grounds of AT&T Performing Arts Center’s Annette Strauss Square. Observe intimate scenes between characters while hearing commentary about the play’s meaning through individual headphones that will be provided for each audience member, creating an experience that is simultaneously both public and private. Contains violence; may not be appropriate for young people under the age of 11.
Please note: Electra is General Admission. The only difference in Areas is that Area 4 is priced in-line with Dallas Theater Center's mission, vision and values. Areas will not effect your seating, and Areas can co-mingle (i.e: an Area 2 ticket can sit next to an Area 3 ticket and so on).
