The Bacchae by Euripides
Ars Aterna Art Company - Municipal and Regional Theatre of Ioannina
Nikaiti Kontouri

ANCIENT THEATRE OF EPIDAURUS

PRESENTATION



 

“Euripides' The Bacchae can be summed up as a ritual of feelings, emotions, rage and unreason”, according to director Nikaiti Kontouri. A tragedy that invariably lends itself to fresh approaches and readings, The Bacchae is the only extant ancient play featuring god Dionysus as a character, mercilessly punishing all those resisting the might of nature and the transformative experience of divine intoxication. Akis Sakellariou and Odysseas Papaspiliopoulos portray Dionysus and King Pentheus respectively, leading an excellent cast.

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