John Lee gives an excellent narration of this "erudite reconsideration" of Greek tragedy and how it holds up a mirror on human nature. The reason we still read the classics is that they show humans as they are--noble and ignoble at the same time. As much as one wishes that human nature had improved over the millennia, little has changed in what makes us human and how we act. Lee's British accent gives this production an academic and authoritative tone. His diction is clear, and his pacing, while somewhat quick, is still easy to follow. Overall, his delivery sounds like that of a professor lecturing on a topic about which he is passionate. M.T.F.
