Ancient Greek Plays


Pat D

I like some good theatre and while some are easy to find, like Shakespeare and Oscar Wilde, I would like some more DVDs of Greek plays. I have Sir Tyrone Guthrie's great 1957 production of Oediupus Rex (W. B. Yeats translation) on Image Entertainment ID1549CODVD. I know Amazon has a modernized version of Antigone (Jean Anouilh) which may be very worthy but is apparently quite different from the original play. And what about Oedipus at Colonus?

Or how about Aeschylus' Prometheus Bound (I know, not much action!) or the Oresteia trilogy. Then there are Euripides and Aristophanes.

Does anyone know if these things are available?
