The Orestia

Prudence instead of revenge, democracy instead of tyranny, jurisdiction instead of emotions—the praised “values of the Western world” would be impossible without its origins based on the ancient Greek polis. This major tragedy, performed in Bochum for the first time, shows that justice and democracy should not be taken for granted. Whether family or society: Every working community depends on its ability to forgive.
