Persians by Aeschylus Performed by SITI Company

Getty Villa / J. Paul Getty Museum

Experience Persians by Aeschylus, performed by SITI Company at the Getty Villa’s dramatic outdoor Barbara and Lawrence Fleischman Theater. One of America’s leading theater ensembles presents the emotional story of war, victory, and loss experienced by an imagined Persian court. In this sole surviving Greek tragedy about a historical event—the battle of Salamis in 480 B.C.—Aeschylus glorifies the Athenian victors but also humanizes the defeated Persians, emphasizing the universal impact of war on family and community. Directed by Anne Bogart, performed by SITI Company, and translated by Aaron Poochigian exclusively for the Getty Villa performance. For ticketing prices, information and more, visit
