GENOME:
[R3 BD=19880920]

by EURIPIDES translated by WILLIAM ARROWSMITH and When the gods demand

Admetos' death, his wife Alcestis offers herself in his place.

This, the earliest of Euripides' known plays, has a mixture of styles that more resembles

Shakespeare's romances than the work of contemporary Greek tragedians.

Music by HARVEY BROUGH and JEREMY TAYLOR
