Trojan Women

Any modern staging of this tragedy has to decide whether to recognize and embrace the present Balkan nightmare, or to shut it out completely. This thoughtful, brave and moving production at Cambridge opts wholeheartedly for the former alternative. … The fine music, composed by Keith Clouston, draws on Albanian folk-songs, mixed with looped drones and voices, and is particularly suitable for such a play of lament. … Every detail is weighed and crafted; the text has been researched, politicized, made musical and passionate.
