The Trojan Women by Euripides

June 30, 2019 @ 9:00 pm

€6 – €12

International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama 2019

The Slovene National Theatre Nova Gorica presents the first Slovenian production of Euripides’ tragedy The Trojan Women, the opening production of this year’s Festival.

The universally timeless anti-war tragedy, with the exceptional direction of Jaša Koceli and Marjuta Slamič in the role of Hecuba, gathered rave reviews from the Slovenian press and audience, giving Marjuta Slamič the Tantadruj award as a distinction for her performance (season 2017/2018).

The Trojan War is over; the Trojan heroes have fallen; the royal family is decimated; the once glorious city is looted. In a landscape of desolation, under the ruined walls, Hecuba – the mother, the woman, the queen- together with the women of Troy, all captives of the Achaeans, lament over their tribulations and their fate to be led as slaves in the homes of the victors.

In Trojan Women, Euripides expresses a relentless “blame” for the atrocities of war, condemning the ferocity of man and praises his ability to endure.
