Hi - can anyone find Aeschylus' "The Oresteia" (which consists of the
plays Agamemnon, The Libation Bearers and The Eumenides) on audio
cassette (preferably) or audio cd (second choice)?  A good answer will
give me a link to where I can buy it online.
There is no answer at this time.

I don't think that you will be able to find an audio cassette or CD
available commercially.

There is however a version available on VHS or DVD of a performance by
the National Theatre of Great Britain, directed and produced by Sir
Peter Hall.

It is a limited release and consequently very expensive to purchase online.

Copies are available from Films Media Group at US$240.95:

Alternatively, if you have access to a university library, they may
have a copy that you can borrow.

thanks for the info, nproctor - I was hoping for an audio copy so I
could listen along with reading the text, but I guess it's not to be.
