Following the critical and commercial success of its initial staging at the Karolos Koun Art Theater’s stage, Konstantinos Hatzis’s and Giorgos Koumentakis’s collaboration on a compilation of texts from Aeschylus’s Agamemnon, and Euripides’s Iphigeneia returns to the stage at the Thisseion theatre-A theatre for the arts.
From January on, through chamber music, three voices, two actors and a violinist, audiences will again have the opportunity to trace the course to the war of Troy, the course of Agamemnon, the beginnings of the war, the sacrifice of his daughter, the war itself, his return to Argos, and his murder / punishment at his wife’s hand. All is due to the war and its nature. All the causes, the “why”s, come alive on stage through the two tragic poets’s work.
Konstantinos Xatzis has put the texts together and is also directing the Art Theater/”Colour” ensemble/Thisseion theatre co-production, scored by Giorgos Koumentakis. Giorgos Bounias has designed the set. Assembled texts are in the K.H. Myris translation of the originals.
The performance stars Lida Protopsalti, and Giorgos Papapavlou.
