AGAMEMNON, based on the Ancient Greek tragedy by Aeschylus, tells the story of the Greek King who is murdered by his wife. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer wrote: "A strong, disturbing score...Fisher creates a sense of foreboding and dread that builds as the work progresses." The Seattle Times described it as “thrilling.” This piece was expanded into DREAM OF ZEUS.
