Play Reading Book Club: Iphigenia

Registration to the program is FREE.

Tickets to the play must be purchased separately.

Enhance your experience!

Expand your theater experience through group dialogue and behind the scenes access to this brand new opera from GRAMMY award winning musician esperanza spalding and jazz legend Wayne Shorter. Over the course of three weeks we will read the Euripides version of this myth, discuss the text, and see the world premiere of this intervention to opera as we know it, and be treated to a private reception with the artists.

ArtsEmerson’s Play Reading Book Club (PRBC) is a dynamic theatre literacy and community education program that provides unique and radical access to scripts, artists, and conversations within the theatre. Learn more.
