“Iphigenia in Tauris” by Euripides

Athens and Epidaurus Festival

What does it mean to be an exile, a foreigner, an outsider? How does one escape one’s past and fate? Euripides wrote Iphigenia in Tauris in the aftermath of the destructive Peloponnesian War, during a period of crisis not unlike ours today, celebrating the greatness of love between siblings and the high values that were becoming extinct.
