13th International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama

Published on Monday June 29th, 2009

13th International Festival of Ancient Greek DramaNow in its 13th year, the ethos of the International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama shows how ancient theatre is interpreted by modern companies from all over the world.

This year, throughout July, nine companies from six countries of Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean present well-known favourites such as ‘Medea’ and ‘Antigone’ alongside lesser-known but equally riveting productions like ‘Thebaid’ and ‘Alcestis’.

The performances take place at the Ancient Odeon of Paphos, the Curium Ancient Theatre in Limassol and the Makarios III Amphitheatre in Nicosia.

The festival is presented by the Cyprus Centre of the International Theatre Institute which was founded 32 years ago. The Centre’s contribution to the Cypriot theatre community is considerable. Through visits of international playwrights, directors and scenographers, the Cypriot theatre community had the opportunity to become acquainted with the global theatrical trends and to bring these developments to local audiences.
