The ebook draws on a unique collection of archival material and research at the Archive of Performances of Greek and Roman Drama and uses images, film, unique interviews and digital objects to tell the story of a play that has inspired countless interpretations, onstage and onscreen, in dance, drama and opera across the globe from antiquity to the present.
