Hippolytus by Euripides

Cyprus : Hippolytus by Euripides

International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama 2019

Maltravieso Teatro and La Almena Producciones, in collaboration with the Mérida International Classical Theatre Festival, present Euripides’ Hippolytus directed by Emilio del Valle.

In Hippolytus, a tragedy with philosophical, religious and existential quests, Euripides sets up a masterful trap, escalating into the tragic, where the Gods play a key role, leading humans in a disastrous conspiracy of silence, in inevitable error, in punishment but also in forgiveness.

The Spanish production, which was presented last summer at the 64th Mérida Festival and received great praise, attempts to recompose the first tragedy written by Euripides, Hippolytus Veiled, based on the surviving Hippolytus Garland-Bearer.

With Phaedra and her stepson Hippolytus, as the two main characters, Euripides weaves up a tragedy that presents the dilemmas between passion and logic, lawless love, oestrus and its tragic consequences.
