A spellbinding Greek tragedy

In Euripides’ tale of hubris and tyranny, a disguised Dionysus descends on the city of Thebes to prove Zeus is his father and settle a score with his mortal adversary King Pentheus. His attempts to tear the people’s loyalties away from the king cause a frenzy of emotion that lands Dionysus in prison. But Pentheus’ misguided attempt to suppress the god’s influence tests his leadership and threatens to bring his family to ruin. With striking visuals and bewitching beauty, legendary director Anne Bogart gives this ancient tale a modern, razor-sharp edge.
