MFAH’s “Artful Thursday” presents The Song of the Scapegoat: The Birth of Greek Tragedy

Posted on · The month's free Artful Thursday program, March 12, 2009, beginning at 6:30 pm in the Caroline Wiess Law Building of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, bears the intriguing title, The Song of the Scapegoat: The Birth of Greek Tragedy. In less than a century, the poets of Fifth-Century B.C. Athens gave birth to and then perfected the genre of Greek Tragedy.  Second only to the epics of Homer in their exalted scope and high seriousness, the tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides invited their audiences to participate in and endure titanic struggles between men and gods, order and chaos, justice and revenge, guilt and expiation.
