A contemporary rewriting of Oresteia : Radio Argo, tragedy for solo voice between Eschilo and Testori · Iphigenia, Clytemnestra, Aegisthus, Cassandra, Agamemnon, Orestes. There are six characters in Radio Argo, a rewriting for solo voice of Oresteia, conceived by Igor Esposito for Peppino Mazzotta who is the director and sole interpreter. Six characters plus one, a nocturnal radio speaker, a chorus of our days, who links the events, and lends a voice, a face, a shaky body to each character. Orestes stands out among them all, an emblematic example of the contemporary metamorphosis of the tragic hero. Through the analysis of textual and intertextual aspects of the play, the paper focuses, in particular, on Orestes. He is the matricide and tormented voice of the new generations, around whom the authors build their reinterpretation of the tragic myth, changing the ending of the tragedy and shifting the reflection from the theme of justice to that of power. A power pursued, feared, rejected.

Abstract

A contemporary rewriting of Oresteia : Radio Argo, tragedy for solo voice between Eschilo and Testori · Iphigenia, Clytemnestra, Aegisthus, Cassandra, Agamemnon, Orestes. There are six characters in Radio Argo, a rewriting for solo voice of Oresteia, conceived by Igor Esposito for Peppino Mazzotta who is the director and sole interpreter. Six characters plus one, a nocturnal radio speaker, a chorus of our days, who links the events, and lends a voice, a face, a shaky body to each character. Orestes stands out among them all, an emblematic example of the contemporary metamorphosis of the tragic hero. Through the analysis of textual and intertextual aspects of the play, the paper focuses, in particular, on Orestes. He is the matricide and tormented voice of the new generations, around whom the authors build their reinterpretation of the tragic myth, changing the ending of the tragedy and shifting the reflection from the theme of justice to that of power. A power pursued, feared, rejected.
