I beg to differ with Bob Mondello’s negative review of the production of Euripides’ Elektra (“In Love’s Country,” 4/7) at the Warehouse Theater, especially his comments about the chorus.

Euripides is something of a softie compared with Aeschylus and Sophocles, lacking the iron heroic spirit of the former and the sophisticated resignation of the latter. I thought the “hip” sassiness of the chorus, with its coldness and irony, helped capture the anguished, angry pessimism of Euripides as he confronts the human predicament.
