The story concerns the legendary sacrifice of Iphigenia by her father, Agamemnon.
When the Greek fleet is becalmed at Aulis, thus preventing movement of the expeditionary force against Troy, Agamemnon is told that he must sacrifice Iphigenia to appease the goddess Artemis, who has caused the unfavourable weather.
Agamemnon lures his daughter to Aulis by pretending that she will marry Achilles… What happens next? Only one way to find out!
