National Theatre of Greece – Yannis Moschos
Phoenissae by Euripides

ANCIENT THEATRE OF EPIDAURUS

PRESENTATION



 

The Phoenician Women has been a staple of the National Theatre of Greece repertoire, with several performances directed by Alexis Minotis, the last being staged in 1988. This year, Euripides’ play finds its way back to Epidaurus in a thoroughly modern production, featuring a splendid cast under the helm of director Yannis Moschos. Euripides provides his own, subversive version of the Labdakides’ myth. The play is set on the day that Polynices has surrounded Thebes with an army, demanding that his brother Eteocles keep his part of the bargain: they had agreed to take turns ruling the city. Their mother, Jocasta, desperately tries to convince them to make amends with each other, surrounded by other characters such as Antigone, Creon, Menoeceus, Teiresias and the blind Oedipus, victims and victimisers of an imminent catastrophic war. Can Oedipus’ sons escape their father’s curse? Do people truly want to avoid civil war and break out of the vicious cycle of violence?

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