Electra by Sophocles

Cyprus : Electra by Sophocles

The Rustaveli Theatre, the largest and one of the oldest theatres of Georgia, presents a gripping and suspenseful adaptation of Sophocles’ tragedy Electra, directed by Robert Sturua, Artistic Director of Rustaveli Theatre and renowned stage director, Grigoris Karantinakis and Nikoloz Heine-Shvelidze. Focusing on the power of women trapped in a patriarchal system, on the complex family and gender dynamics relevant to today’s world, on the political activism dictating us to raise our voices tirelessly in the name of justice, Robert Sturua’s visionary production manages to create a landscape of suspense and tension that propels the play to its inevitable conclusion.

Electra, which represents the last and most mature creative period of Sophocles, recounts the murder in the palace of Atreides, which reaches its peak with the matricide of Orestes.
