Electra Press Night at The Old Vic

Electra Press Night at The Old Vic

Kristin Scott Thomas and director Ian Rickson reunite to bring Sophocles’ tragedy to The Old Vic in the round. Frank McGuinness delivers a charged adaptation of this classic tale of power and revenge. Electra is bound by grief following the murder of her father Agamemnon, unwilling to forgive and  consumed by a desire for revenge, her anger builds. On the return of her brother Orestes, Electra’s fury explodes without mercy, leading to a bloody and  terrifying conclusion.

Rave reviews have followed the press night held on  Wednesday 1st October  where guests were treated to a Taittinger Champagne reception.

Taittinger is the official Champagne partner to The Old Vic.
