Alcestis, the Bradfield Play 2019
21 June 2019 - 26 June 2019
In the words of Polly Caffrey, Head of Classics at Bradfield… “We are bringing our Greek play back into line with the Oxford –Bradfield- Cambridge triennial and putting on “Alcestis” in June 2019, a mere two years on from Persae 2017. As you would expect from Euripides there will be something for everyone (laughter, tears, ott masks, etc) but a special highlight will be the solo songs and the Kommos reconstructed by Prof Armand D’Angour especially for the production, with Barnaby Brown playing the reconstructed ancient double aulos (alongside splendid Victorian choral music from the 1887 Oxford “Alcestis” by C H Lloyd, a pupil of Parry).”
