This article argues that Euripides employed a form of musical repetition when staging the character Echo in the Andromeda. In doing so he was drawing on innovations in contemporary musical culture to produce a striking dramatic effect. This hypothesis also suggests a new way of approaching Aristophanes’ parody of Euripides’ Echo in the Thesmophoriazusae. []
