Tony Award-winning actor Audra McDonald performs Emily Wilson's new translation of one of the world's oldest stories. The ten-year war between the Greeks and the Trojans nears its end, but Achilles, the mightiest warrior of his time, refuses to continue fighting after receiving a gross insult from Agamemnon. Without Achilles, the Greeks begin losing droves of warriors, and the Trojans can almost taste their long-fought-for victory. McDonald gives a performance for the ages as she narrates this epic with a masterful sense of rhythm, drawing out the suspense of the back-and-forth between the Greeks and the Trojans. Her voice captures the clamor and clash of war, bringing to our mind's eye the deadly battle between men and gods alike. K.D.W.
