After the fall of Troy, Agamemnon brings her, a captive, to Argos. In the chorus presented, the Argive Elders express strange forebodings of evil. Cassandra prophesies Agamemnon's death and her own as well as disasters to follow because of the curse on the House of Atreus.

She attempts to justify her actions but Electra curses her. Electra laments. She no longer hopes that her brother, Orestes, will return to avenge the death of their father. Orestes appears before her. After a few moments of joy at their reunion, Orestes must do his duty. He must kill his mother. After the murder, Orestes, out of his mind, feels the presence of the Furies around him. He knows that these deities, avengers of crime and especially crime against ties of kinship, will pursue him.
