Spotlight Performance - Electra's Oresteia at Lane Community College
Electra's Oresteia is a rock n roll adaptation of Aeschylus' Trilogy that tells the story of Agamemnon's return from the Trojan War and the tragedy that follows. But this story positions the forgotten daughter, Electra, as the protagonist and moral center of this complicated story of revenge, justice, and social progress. The Ragozzino Performance Hall on Lane Community College's main campus is the perfect venue for this production that is part rock concert, part Broadway musical, and part Greek tragedy.

Electra's Oresteia
Directed by Brian Haimbach
Music by Cullen Vance
Book and Lyrics by Cullen Vance, Brian Haimbach, and students of the LCC Theatre Program

The performance is free to the general public. At door donations will go towards Theatre scholarships and production expenses. No need for reservations.
