"There is a smell of murder. The walls drip with blood." From Agamemnon by Aeschylus. Queen Clytemnestra, the original femme fatale, rules the powerful ancient kingdom of Mycenae, kills her husband when he returns victorious from the Trojan War, and takes his cousin as his consort. Enter her world, where men dominate, where family duty is paramount, and women do as they're told. Clytemnestra, sister to the devastatingly beautiful Helen of Troy, is destined to marry a man of her father's choosing and leave her home to be queen of a land she's never set foot in. That is, until her childhood friend, Agamemnon, decides he wants her for his own. Betrayal is a double edged sword -- what drives the obedient, dutiful Clytemnestra to betray?
