The army of the Persian king Darius was founded in 490 BC, Was defeated by the Athenians in the Battle of Marathon. Ten years later, his son Xerxes, with a mighty fleet of over a thousand ships, went out against the Greeks to avenge the defeat of defeat. Tormented by evil dreams and premonitions, the Persian king-mother Atossa waits for news from the war zone before Salamis. A messenger tells of the inhuman horrors of the battle. The Persian fleet was lured into a backdrop and beaten by the Greeks, who were far outnumbered by numbers. Only the young King Xerxes has escaped with a small force and on the retreat. At home, the old men summon the spirit of their deceased Darius, who, in the defeat of his son, sees the divine punishment of the young ruler's hubris. Xerxes returns heavily drawn from the battle, most men are lost, the conquest of the Persians is destroyed.

472 v. Aeschylus, who belonged to the people of the victors, and who had fought with him, wrote from the perspective of the vanquished, the Persians, the earliest tragedy of world literature, a teaching and reminder of the Persian war and their defeat And moved to a foreign country. The Persians are no anti-war, in which war is condemned as such. Apart from the fact that the ancient world could scarcely imagine a world without war, the war as a principle of life was in high esteem. The Persians are rather a piece against the arrogance of the rearmament and the blindness of warfare. The main motif is hubris. Like almost all heroes of Greek tragedy, Xerxes is based on her own blindness.

Venue
 
Academy Theatre Vienna (Akademietheater)
 

Designed by the architects Fellner & Hellmer and Ludwig Baumann and built between 1911 and 1913, the Akademietheater has been the Burgtheater’s second venue since 1922. After many years of requests from ensemble members of the Burgtheater who wanted a second stage of more intimate dimensions, Max Paulsen succeeded in affiliating the “Theatre of the Academy of Music and the Performing Arts”, for brevity 's sake called Akademietheater, to the Burgtheater as a smaller, second venue. It was inaugurated on September 8, 1922, with a performance of Goethe’s Iphigenia in Tauris. After the Second World War, which the building survived intact, the theatre was re-opened on May 19, 1945, under the direction of Raoul Aslan with Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler. The Akademietheater was refurbished and technically upgraded in 1974 and in 1999.
