When triumphant King Agamemnon returned from the Trojan War, his wife Clytemnestra betrayed and murdered him. To save her young brother from slaughter at their mother's hands, the princess Electra had Orestes secreted away under cover of darkness. Now a grown man, the son of Agamemnon returns from exile with a claim to the throne and a plot for revenge.
