»The Oresteia« and »The Persians« by Aeschylus tell of the cruelty of war. War correspondents have an important function. Roland Schäfer reads from the two plays and will talk about them. Peter Stein recalls his legendary Oresteia production at the Schaubühne in 1980, the one-year rehearsal period, the creation of his translation and the history of its impact.

Speaker: Roland Schäfer
