A familiar story to lovers of the stage, Sophocles' classic play is given a fascinating new interpretation by the Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre.


Agamemnon returned from Troy in triumph, but was murdered by his wife, Clytemnestra, and her adulterer, Ecclesiastes. Fearing for the fate of her brother Orestes, her eldest daughter Electra secretly sent him to Chrysa in the region of Phocis. Eight years later, Electra is reunited with Orestes, who has returned to his homeland, and an epic of revenge is unleashed.


With English subtitles.


Global Stage on Screen is a new season bringing 10 selected stage works from Asia to cinemas in the UK. The programme includes classics well-known to western audiences presented with an Eastern interpretation, alongside original stories drawn from the rich and vibrant Chinese artistic culture.
