Drama Productions

12:36pm

The Department of Classics staged its first formal dramatic production in 1992, and has since put on a Greek or Latin play (in English translation) almost every year. In most cases, we have used our own translations, especially written for the occasion.

The productions marked with an asterisk are available on dvd with accompanying booklets containing introduction, the full text, and notes. To obtain texts and dvds of Sophocles (OT, OC, Ant), Euripides (Bacc, Hipp) and Aristophanes (Clouds) within New Zealand, contact Dr Harry Love: hlove@clear.net.nz. For North American enquiries, please contact Access Distribution of Edmonton, Canada at: www.distributionaccess.com.
