Now you can see Aeschylus’s The Suppliant Women, one of the oldest extant dramas from ancient Greece, at the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades on November 17, 18, and 19.
Inspired by the myth in which the 50 sons of Aegyptus seek to possess the 50 daughters of Danaos by forced marriage. Danaos and his daughters reject the compulsory unions and flee to Argos for sanctuary while pursued by the Egyptians.
One of the earliest known stories of refugees, this poetic piece is also remarkably timely.
Tickets are just $7 and the schedule is as follows:
Friday, November 17, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 3:00 and 7:30 p.m.
