The Bacchae - The Bacchae mp3 album
The Bacchae is an ancient Greek tragedy, written by the Athenian playwright Euripides during his final years in Macedonia, at the court of Archelaus I of Macedon. It premiered posthumously at the Theatre of Dionysus in 405 BC as part of a tetralogy that also included Iphigeneia at Aulis and Alcmaeon in Corinth, and which Euripides' son or nephew is assumed to have directed. It won first prize in the City Dionysia festival competition.
In The Bacchae, for example there are all kinds of funny moments. We're pretty sure Pentheus prancing around in lady's clothes got a few chuckles, even though the audience would have been well aware that he was about to be ripped limb from limb by his own mother. This blending of the humorous and horrific was revolutionary. When The Bacchae got its Athenian debut, we bet everybody way back in 405 . was like, "Hey, why didn't we pay more attention to this guy?" Sophocles definitely gave Euripides some respect . Of course, the revelries that Dionysus inspires in The Bacchae are much different than your average party. Dionysus's followers don't just party for partying's sake. Their wild gatherings are sacred rituals.

This last performance is back at Teatro Oficina from February 11th until April 2nd, including the Carnival days (February 26th and 27th) when almost all the theaters don’t perform in Brazil. But he did. And it is not a simple staging of The Bacchae, but one of the most important Brazilian plays of the end of 20th century. And this rite-play begins the performance as a Samba School going out to a parade in the Carnival. Politics in the plot.

Euripides The Bacchae 404 BC. Translator's Note. Note that the normal line numbers refer to the English translation and the ones in square brackets refer to the lines in the Greek text. The content of the missing lines is fairly well known, so this translation has attempted to provide a reconstructed text for the missing portion (lines 1645 to 1699 of the English text). That reconstructed text appears between square brackets. This translation was last revised in July 2003.
