Aquila Theatre, the Urban Libraries Council, the American Philological Association, the Center for Ancient Studies at New York University and the Harvard Center for Hellenic Studies continue to inspire people to “come together to read, see, and think about classical literature and how it continues to influence and invigorate American cultural life.”
The Onassis Cultural in New York City is getting ready for some epic visitors. Achilles, Odysseus, and Herackles are on their way. Helen of Troy will be there too. They’re all part of the exhibit HEROES Mortals and Myths in Ancient Greece opening October 5th 2010 and continuing until January 3, 2011.
In April 2010 the Aquila Theatre Company received $800,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support new productions of classic Greek works. The productions, including scenes from Homer’s Odyssey, Sophocles’ Ajax, Euripides’ Herackles, and The Trojan War, and Aeschylus’ Persians, will be performed for veterans’ groups. The NEH intend to begin “a national program series exploring classical literature.”
