The Bacchae by Euripides

The Municipality of Rethymno, Ars Aterna Art Company - Municipal and Regional Theatre of Ioannina present Bacchae by Euripides

on Monday July 26 at the Erofili Theatre 22:15, Fortress.


 “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.
