(from ""History of the Ancient World, 8/2.)
The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles will be starting an exhibition this month entitled, The Art of Ancient Greek Theater. It is the first exhibition in the United States in over fifty years to focus on the artistic representation of theatrical performance in ancient Greece. Assembling international loans of antiquities from many museums and private collections, the exhibition illustrates the ways in which dramatic performance was depicted in the visual arts of ancient Greece between the fifth and the first centuries B.C. The exhibition is being presented in conjunction with the Getty Villa’s annual outdoor theater performance, Sophocles’ Elektra.
