Helen by Euripides
5 July 2014, 21:00 Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus
Set & Costume Design
“…all for an empty tunic, all for a Helen.”
On the 60-year anniversary of the Epidaurus Festival, new talents on the Greek stage bring a breath of fresh creative air to what is arguably the most beautiful theatre in the world.
Dimitris Karantzas, at age 26, with a company of young actors and artists open the 2014 Epidaurus Festival with Euripides’ Helen (412 BC). In this tragedy with a happy ending, the real Helen lives in Egypt while the woman in Troy who has the same name is nothing but her look-alike phantom, an invention of the gods – so much trouble for a “cloud,” the poet muses with much bitterness as Athens mourns the dead of the Sicilian Expedition.
The performance is presented in Greek, with english surtitles
