About

In few words:

Gluck’s last opera tragedy features three characters tormented by what modern psychology would describe as post-traumatic reactions: Iphigenia, who escaped the sacrifice demanded by her compatriots in their warring madness; Orestes, gnawed by remorse for having murdered his mother; and King Thoas, obsessed by nightmarish visions of his own death. Director Krzysztof Warlikowski transposes the work into the realms of a retirement home, where the heroine, an ageing resident, is haunted by her past. In this closed, stifling environment, characters, as legendary as they are real, confront one another to bring an end to the perpetual cycle of violence.

CHARACTERS

Iphigenia: High priestess of the goddess Diana
Orestes: Iphigenia’s brother
Pylades: A friend of Orestes
Thoas: King of Tauris
