Review of "Bacchae" in LA Times
“Spellbinding”—I’ll take it. Thanks, LA Times:

“. . . .it’s by far the most theatrically assured rendition of the play I’ve encountered. The fluid translation by Aaron Poochigian is as mercurial as the staging.”

Thanks to the Sphere for helping me revise the translation!

Awesome, Aaron -- congrats!

Our pleasure, Aaron. Well done!

Congrats Aaron. I wish I were in LA to see your words on stage.

From what I read, it is an admirable translation.

That is some news! Congratulations, Aaron!

Congratulations, Aaron! Was the translation a commission?

Aaron Poochigian 09-11-2018 08:35 PM

Thank you, all, gentlemen. I will be down in LA to see the show again this weekend.

Max, yes, the translation was a commission. I hope there are many more such to come.
