'Agamemnon' in Performance, 458 BC - 2001 AD
Oxford, September 2001

The Archive of Performances of Greek and Roman Drama at the University of Oxford
is pleased to announce its second major conference, 'Agamemnon' in Performance,
458 BC - 2001 AD, to be held at Wadham College, Oxford, from 20-22 September 2001.  
We hope that this three-day interdisciplinary meeting will mark a new chapter in
the systematic study of the performances of ancient drama, following on the
success of the Medea in Performance, 1500 - 2000 conference held in 1998 (the
proceedings of which have recently been published by Legenda).
