Andrei Serban: The Greek Trilogy

Synopsis
This video contains excerpts from off-Broadway experimental productions of director Andrei Serban’s flamboyant interpretations of Electra, Medea, and The Trojan Women. Critic Margaret Croyden explains how Serban combined Latin, Greek, and vocalizations "in an attempt to find a language identical to the emotion behind it."
