Artistry steeped in traditions of five thousand years played out before him. Thespis dared to speak to the chorus giving rise to those who carried his name. Oresteia won Aeschylus accolades with a second thespian for dialog. Sophocles upped the ante, beating Aeschylus in the games with a drama replete with patricide, incest and the failings of Oedipus the King. Euripides showed the gods and their human frailties endearing himself to the crowd.

Dionysus smiled in anticipation. Each production an homage meant just for him. He and the audience sill determined whose name would be immortalized.

On with the show.
