City of Dallas Cultural Affairs presents Athens v. Sparta

City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs

"A great war, more worthy than any that had preceded it." - Thucydides

Athens v. Sparta
A History of the Peloponnesian War
Saturday, May 22 @ 8:30 PM
Tickets Available at the Door
$10 Admission

The Peloponnesian War, a conflict that took place in the latter part of the 5th century BCE and enveloped the entire Greek world for more than thirty years.
It is not without reason that historians and scholars have attempted to understand and retell Thucydides' story since it was first written. Athens v. Sparta now joins that tradition, infusing the classical narrative of the Peloponnesian War with a take that is vibrant, modern and above all, musical.

Led by a veteran of the San Antonia and Austin indie music scenes, Charlie Roadman, Athens v. Sparta was inspired by Thucydides and his successor, Xenophon (who took up the history following Thucydides' death), capturing the gravity of the ancient narrative within the approachable framework of well-crafted, modern musical sensibilities.
The result is a vivid, fascinating, occasionally humorous, and often suprising fusion, which achieves its aim well: to present the fullness of the war, its circumstances and consequences, to ears not yet attuned to the nuances of ancient history.
