The Greek Na­tional The­ater goes on stage at the An­cient The­ater of Ep­i­dau­rus on Friday and Satur­day, July 21 and 22, with a kooky adap­ta­tion of Aristo­phanes’ “Peace,” di­rected in the form of a mu­si­cal by Con­stanti­nos Ar­van­i­takis, with a score com­posed by Nikos Ky­pour­gos and star­ring the un­ortho­dox mu­si­cian/ac­tor Tz­imis Panousis as Try­gaeus. Mean­while, at the Lit­tle The­ater, di­rec­tor Pantelis Den­takis presents an all-fe­male cast in his take on Euripi­des’ “Cy­clops” in order to ex­plore the all-mas­cu­line world cre­ated by the an­cient Greek play­wright from the fem­i­nine per­spec­tive. Both pro­duc­tions fea­ture English sur­titles and are part of the Greek Fes­ti­val. To find out more about tick­ets and how to get to the the­ater, visit www.greek­fes­ti­val.gr.
