The Bacchae

By Euripides
Translated by Paul Woodruff

Directed by David Furumoto (Guest Artist)

The extraordinary beauty/passion of this Greek tragedy examines irreverence as Dionysus exacts revenge on all who do not believe he is a god. This production will be infused with Kabuki theatrical techniques.
