The Trojan Women by Euripides
 
 

Modern production of a play of Euripides.  The chorus in the old Greek play was a company of singers who both took part in the action and served as interpreters of it to the audience.  They are represented in the picture by the groups in dark robes standing in the circular space of the orchestra around the altar.  The part of the chorus gradually decreased in importance as the number of actors was increased.  The stage or scene was always very simple in structure.  The picture is from The Trojan Women, as presented in the Stadium at the College of the City of New York in 1915.
