In this tragic trilogy, Agamemnon's murder sets off a horrific chain of events. First, Agamemnon makes it home from the war, but gets murdered in a bathtub by his wife, Clytemnestra. Second, Orestes, Agamemnon's son, returns home, and with the encouragement of his sister, Electra, avenges his father's death by killing Clytemnestra and her lover Aegisthus. Finally, the Furies plague Orestes for killing his mother, but the cycle of violence is put to rest in a trial hosted by Athena. Whew.
