Live recording of the Comédie-Française production; director Ivo van Hove received a lot of praise for the way he merged two Euripides tragedies to relate the revenge of brother and sister Orestes and Electra on their father’s killers. The Belgian director is known for his avant-garde dramatisations; the two leads (Suliane Brahim as Electra, Christophe Montenez as Orestes) are particularly good, but the whole cast is rather special. Greek tragedies are traditionally rooted in their time, which can make them rather stodgy for a modern audience; not this one.
