The Fall of Troy and Tragic Love

The great epic of ancient Rome will be performed on two Saturday evenings Aug. 17 and 24, 5 p.m. at the Frazier Park Library.

The reading of The Aeneid directed by Anna Krajewska-Wieczorek, Ph.D. will tell two stories of the large Roman epic: the fall of Troy caused by an attack of the Greeks hidden in a Trojan horse, and the story of Aeneas who, after his escape from Troy, meets beautiful queen Dido in Carthage. Their love leads to a tragic end.

Readers include Katherine C. King (as Narrator), Eric Rand (as Aeneas), Nicole Rand (Dido), Kathy Babcock (Juno), George Garrigues (as Priam) and Patric Hedlund (Venus).

Everyone is welcome to attend. Meet in the library community room, 5-7 p.m.

This is part of the August 16, 2013 online edition of The Mountain Enterprise.
