Oresteia: four years in the making

Aeschylus’s Oresteia is the sole surviving trilogy of Ancient Greek plays and yet it is rarely performed in its entirety.

In this brief interview clip, Richard Spaul tells how in situ:’s production has taken four years to complete and why in situ: decided to attempt such an ambitious undertaking.
