National Theatre of Northern Greece – Vassilis Papavassiliou
Helen by Euripides

ANCIENT THEATRE OF EPIDAURUS

PRESENTATION



 

Due to the ongoing pandemic, all performance dates are subject to change

Written in the aftermath of Athenians’ crushing defeat at the Sicilian Expedition, Euripides’ Helen is noted both for its anti-war qualities and its focus on virtues such as the power of oath and intelligence, both personified in the form of the titular heroine. Drawing on the version of the myth created by lyrical poet Stesichorus instead of Homer’s best-known version, Euripides portrays the Trojan War as a massacre committed for a phantom rather than a real woman. A tragedy almost verging on comedy, Helen is now presented at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus in a National Theatre of Northern Greece production, directed by Vassilis Papavassiliou.
