WHAT MAKES A TRAGEDY?

Thursday, August 29, 2024

The Goat or, Who is Sylvia? is Edward Albee's attempt at writing a modern-day Greek tragedy. Romeo and Juliet is regarded as the world's greatest love story even though everyone knows it ends in death. A panel of experts, including classicist Adriana Brook and Michael Y. Bennett, President of the Edward Albee Society, discuss the origins of tragedy and its perennial draw with moderator Ludmylla Reis.
