"Prometheus Bound" is the only complete tragedy of the Prometheia trilogy, traditionally assumed to be the work of Aeschylus.

Reviews

Enjoyable

(5 stars)

The play is a typically good Greek story and the recording is of pretty good quality.

(4 stars)

Well done- esp Prometheus, Io, Oceanus. Mercury/Hermes is unintelligible, but fought through it.

Fairly good recordings

(5 stars)

Could understand the majority of it, good editing.
