The Bacchae

April 11-14, 2019 | Mainstage Theater

By Euripedes
Directed by Dmitry Troyanovsky

A collaboration with the Classics Department, this new translation from ancient Greek tells the story of Dionysus, who travels to Thebes to clear his mother’s name. His arrival upends the ordered city-state by introducing to Theban women the frenzied worship of a new god. With exciting new songs and vibrant choreography, this production takes a contemporary look at transgression, gender, religious ecstasy, political authority and the psychology of mass violence.
