Harrison’s Oresteia

For the benefit of students taking the MA Translating Myth, but also for everyone’s pleasure, here is the television recording of Tony Harrison’s Oresteia, directed by Peter Hall for the National Theatre in 1981, with music by Harrison Birtwistle.

You may wish to pause and consider the fact that this was broadcast in its entirety on Channel 4 (UK) one Sunday evening in 1983.
