The Classical Greek Theatre Festival presents Prometheus Bound by Aeschylus, translated by William Matthews, and directed by Emilio Casillas. Prometheus Bound tells of the fall of the Titan Prometheus at the hands of the newly crowned king of the gods, the Olympian Zeus. Bound to a rock at the bottom of a ravine in the far flung Caucasus, Prometheus is visited by the Oceanids – nymphs of the world’s many springs, their father Oceanus – the primordial world-encircling river, Io—the mortal woman loved by Zeus and harried by Hera, and finally by Hermes—the young Olympian chosen as the emissary of Zeus.
