Sicily and Greek Theatre: a podcast with Professor Oliver Taplin and Dr Giovanna Di Martino

This edition of Staging the Archive podcast was recorded in March 2020, bringing together Professor Oliver Taplin (Emeritus Professor of Classics, Oxford, and co-founder of the APGRD) and Dr Giovanna Di Martino (Lecturer in Classics, Oxford) discussing Sicily's privileged relationship with ancient Greek theatre. In particular, they focus on early-mid 20th century performances of Aeschylus' Agamemnon at the Greek theatre at Syracuse.
