This production of Aeschylus' tragedy done with a translation by British poet Ted Hughes (published posthumously in 1999) and visuals drawn from 20th-century wars and aesthetics.
The Trojan War, concluded offstage, is much discussed and leads to an elaborate and ultimately unpleasant homecoming for the title character, a warrior who paid a dear price for his victory. At first, as the apparent sole surviving Greek general (Odysseus et al. having had some trouble getting home), Agamemnon still owes big-time for his misleadingly good fortune.
