WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Greeks have assembled their army at the port of Aulis in a battle against Troy, but the ships cannot set sail unless King Agamemnon, commander of the army, sacrifices his eldest daughter, Iphigenia, to the goddess Artemis. Iphigenia is brought to the port under the pretense she is to marry decorated fighter Achilles, but the truth will soon be revealed.
