“Let me not then die ingloriously and without a struggle, but let me first do some great thing that shall be told among men hereafter.”
― Homer, The Iliad, Book 22 (Tr. R. Fagles)
The Aquila Theatre and American combat veterans/actors of the Warrior Chorus collaborate on a unique theatrical experience – The Trojan War, where the classic myths of ancient Greece and Rome are set against the compelling narratives of modern war.
The Trojan War uses epic moments from Homer’s Iliad and scenes from other classical Greek drama and poetry to propel a thrilling chronicle of men and women at war. The clash of gods and heroes, the rage of Achilles, the suicide of Ajax, the fall of Troy and the rise of Rome are among the many stories of war and homecoming told by the Aquila Theatre alongside members of the Warrior Chorus.
Please join us for a talk-back with veterans immediately following the performance.
