Following are comments received from audience members after they attended a performance by Eldon of The Iliad.
You remind us that Homer is really about people, passionate and flawed, who collide tragically-- that is, Homer is about life. You can do more to revitalize ancient literature than any 100 scholarly monographs.
We would like to thank you for such a wonderful presentation of the Iliad for our Grand Circle Group while touring in Greece this year. The Characters you portrayed revived the ancient heroes native to this land that you visited
Your interpretation of this fine old classic was outstanding! You took us to Ancient Greece and let us mingle with the Gods and mortals - it was great fun and we all enjoyed the time with you. Our members said “Bravo” and are asking when you can give us an encore.
I believe your performance also taught us more about how history and legend was passed along in ancient days. The bard, in this case Homer, played an important part in preserving historic tales. Also, lake any good actor, his presentation of characters could sway the emotions and sympathies of his listeners.
Eldon, your presentation was awesome! You had me raptured throughout. What a marvelous performance!
I thought it was grand. It must be delivered in such style.
I was spellbound. I rolled with the story and followed intensely. I will never forget tonight.
Eldon -- What an amazing feet. This will be a great success for you.
The Performance was excellent even if I didn’t know the story.
Very good Eldon, I was surprised and pleased.
Very well done. I can tell that Eldon had a lot of fun in thinking through how to portray each of the various characters. It makes me want to reread the stories! Very entertaining.
Excellent! Eldon gave life and force to each character.
Excellent performance!!! A wonderful tool to introduce new audiences to the classics. Would love to discuss comparisons to modern world drama, romance and entertainment.
Enjoyed it. Loved the facial changes slipping into some of the characters more than others.
Exciting. Great control of the audience. Excellent portrayal of characters. Smooth transition from one to another.
Good performance, amazing being on the floor close to the audience, gives you a feeling of being part of the performance.
A major theatrical and artistic contribution and achievement.
