In the impressive Rheinsberg Heckentheater, Christoph Willibald Gluck's catchy opera tells the gripping prehistory of the Trojan War.
King Agamemnon is desperate. He is to sacrifice his daughter Iphigenia - only then will the wind carry the Greek navy to Troy. Will he follow the commandment of the gods or will his love for his child prevail? Does he want to be a good father or a glorious warlord? But perhaps Iphigenia also has a say in the matter. And then there is her fiancé Achilles, perhaps the bravest of all heroes ...
