Can anyone suggest a Bacchae student commentary?

I'm required to read through Euripides' Bacchae as part of my graduate reading list. I haven't done any Euripides for some time, and it's slow going. Can anyone recommend a good student commentary? By "student commentary" I mean something that touches upon difficult points of grammar/syntax as well as literary/historical information, since I'm still not entirely comfortable in Greek.

Thanks!

Dodds was the standard, or perhaps only, commentary in my day. I believe it's still knocking around.

I've got Dodds' commentary but was hoping to supplement it with another one.

I see a lot of these little green-&-yellow guys (on the tragedians specifically), but I can't for the life of me remember the name of the publisher. Maybe it's what you guys're talking about.

Oh, looks like Cambridge.

They're popular around here, but I don't know if they've got the Bacchae.
