Live, in-person theatrical production.
The Bacchae is a revenge tragedy – Dionysos, also known as Bacchus, God of Wine, Revelry and Theatre – avenges the honor of his mother, Semele. Her family did not recognize him as the fruit of her love for Zeus, nor his rank as a God. King Pentheus opposes the bacchic rites that challenge the social order he is so committed to uphold. His intransigence and pride prove to be his demise: we must honor the Gods, and remain as flexible as we can.
