Lust poses as love and ambition as patriotism in this dark and brilliant play depicting the heroic action of the Trojan War.
Troy is besieged by the invading Greeks, but the young Trojan prince Troilus can think only of his love for Cressida. Her uncle Pandarus brings the two together, but after only one night news comes that Cressida must be sent to the enemy camp. There, as Troilus looks on, she yields to the wooing of the Greek Diomedes. The tragic story is undercut by the commentary of Thersites, who provides a cynical chorus.

ArkAngel is always a wonderful interpretation
Troilus and Cressida was a wonderful performance of one of William Shakespeare's lesser known plays, it is in the top 15 for sure.
The peak of the play with Troilus and Cressida are finally able to come together.
I enjoyed the scene's highlighting Cressida the most.
I was able to listen to this in two sittings.
