Of course is will be ten long years before Agamemnon returns, to be murdered in his royal home by his wife Clytemnestra, who spent those long years of separation waiting for the day she could avenge her daughter's death.
Iphigenia in Aulis or at Aulis is the last of the extant works by the playwright Euripides. Written between 408, after Orestes, and 406 BC, the year of Euripides' death, the play was first produced the following year in a trilogy with The Bacchae and Alcmaeon in Corinth by his son or nephew, Euripides the Younger, and won the first place at the Athenian city Dionysia.
Euripides was a tragedian of classical Athens. Along with Aeschylus and Sophocles, he is one of the three ancient Greek tragedians for whom a significant number of plays have survived. Some ancient scholars attributed 95 plays to him but, according to the Suda, it was 92 at most. Of these, 18 or 19 have survived more or less complete (there has been debate about his authorship of Rhesus, largely on stylistic grounds) and there are also fragments, some substantial, of most of the other plays
Iphigenia in Aulis is the last extant work of the playwright Euripides. He sends a message to his wife, Clytemnestra, telling her to send Iphigenia to Aulis on the pretext that the girl is to be married to the Greek warrior Achilles before he sets off to fight.
Iphigenia in Aulis is the last extant work of the playwright Euripides. The Greek fleet is waiting at Aulis, Boeotia, with its ships ready to sail for Troy, but it is unable to depart due to a strange lack of wind.
The story of Iphigenia at Aulis would be the background story of Aeschylus' Agamemnon. The play starts with Agamemnon changing his mind. He sends another message to his wife to stop her from sending Iphigenia. The play takes place at Aulis where the Greek army is ready to sail for Troy and start the war. The goddess Artemis, however, has made so that there are no winds for sail since Agamemnon, a Greek general, has caused her offense. The message, however, is intercepted by Menelaus, his brother, who gets upset at his brother.

LibriVox recording of Iphigenia in Aulis (Way translation) by Euripides. The play revolves around Agamemnon, the leader of the Greek coalition before and during the Trojan War, and his decision to sacrifice his daughter, Iphigenia, to appease the goddess Artemis and allow his troops to set sail to preserve their honour in battle against Troy. The conflict between Agamemnon and Achilles over the fate of the young woman presages a similar conflict between the two at the beginning of the Iliad.
Iphigenia at Aulis was Euripides‘ last play, written just before his death . Compared to Euripides‘ earlier treatment of the Iphigenia legend in the rather lightweight Iphigenia in Tauris , this later play is much darker in nature.
Iphigenia at Aulis was Euripides‘ last play, written just before his death, but it only premiered posthumously as part of a tetralogy that also included his Bacchae at the City Dionysia festival of 405 BCE. The play was directed by Euripides‘ son or nephew, Euripides the Younger, who was also a playwright, and won first prize at the contest (ironically a prize that had eluded Euripides all his life). However, it is one of the few Greek plays which shows Agamemnon in anything other than a negative light.
Iphigenia in Aulis book. This play premiered in Athens in 405BC and is about an incident that took place at Aulis before the the armies of Hellas could set sail for the Trojan War. This isn't a tragedy as we would normally think of them, as in Shakespeare's tragedies where bodies litter the stage by the final scene but it is a tragedy nonetheless despite the apparent 'happy' ending.
