Andromaque, by Jean Racine, is the quintessential Greek tragedy. In the midst of the Trojan War, Pyrrhus, king of Epirus, must choose between his intended bride, Hermione, and the woman he loves, Andromache, widow of King Hector. The radical madness of this play is only further enhanced by the directive talent of Yves Beaunesne, who offers an interpretation of the text that speaks of self-assertion and the emancipation of women. Executed by an international cast that sees two Luxem bourgish actresses play these tragic heroines, the play is also a musical work performed by an instrumental quartet led by the actresses themselves and a saxophonist Pyrrhus. A version that is sure to make you want to (re)discover this classic.
