Since it premiered in Athens in 405 BC alongside Bacchai, Euripides' Iphigeneia in Aulis has been one of the most performed and re-imagined of Ancient Greek Tragedies. The story of how Iphigeneia, the daughter of Agamemnon, agrees to her own sacrifice so that the Greeks might sail to Troy has been re-interpreted in drama, opera and film by amongst others Racine, Gluck, Goethe and Cacoyannis.This translation and adaptation, which availed of the most recent textual scholarship of the source text, strips the piece down to its Euripidean essentials. Colin Teevan's version, Iph..., was first performed at The Lyric Theatre, Belfast in 1999 and since on BBC Radio.
