New York based-SITI Company, one of America's leading theater ensembles, presents the emotional story of war, victory, and loss experienced by an imagined Persian court. In this sole surviving Greek tragedy about a historical event—the battle of Salamis in 480 B.C.—Aeschylus glorifies the Athenian victors but also humanizes the defeated Persians, emphasizing the universal impact of war on family and community.
