well played


(5 stars)

A great classic well done. Very worth a listen. I found the chorus slightly difficult to understand but got accustomed to it. Thank you for this dramatization.


(5 stars)

I truly enjoyed listening to this rendition of Electra. Particularly the use of voice effects for the chorus. Ask part were clearly distinguishable.


(4 stars)

Electra and the other characters were played by a great cast, but the digitized voice was a bit distracting


(5 stars)

I like that each character has a different actor
