A group of Athenian aristocrats attend a party held by Agathon to celebrate his victory in the drama festival of the Dionysia. They talk about love until the drunken Alcibiades bursts in, and decides to talk about Socrates instead. 'Symposium' gives a picture of the sparkling society that was Athens at the height of her empire. This classic discussion on love is presented in its ideal medium.
