Aristophanes' "The Wasps"

1 post in this topic

Here is a complete performance of the satirical comedy, The Wasps, by the great ancient Greek playwright, Aristophanes, with a complete score of incidential music composed by British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams in 1909 on a commission by the Cambridge Greek Play Committee. Although the original Cambridge Committee's production was done in Ancient Greek, this recording uses a modern English translation by David Poutney.

The YouTube poster's notes (under the viewer) offer quite a bit of information and the complete text of the play can be found HERE, should you wish to follow along.

Have fun!

w. Incidental Music by Ralph Vaughan Williams
