Th­es­mopho­ri­azusae

Santorini Traveler - - GREEK FESTIVAL -

by Aristo­phanes Euripi­des is up­set af­ter find­ing out that the women who are about to cel­e­brate the Th­es­mopho­ria are bent on pun­ish­ing him for his un­flat­ter­ing por­trayal of fe­male char­ac­ters. In an at­tempt to es­cape, Euripi­des comes up with a plan: he de­cides to have a friend of his in­fil­trate the fes­ti­val, dis­guised as a woman, and vin­di­cate him. Mne­silochus is up to the task. At the fes­ti­val, the women of Th­es­mopho­ria, the Th­es­mopho­ri­azusae take turns ac­cus­ing Euripi­des. Mne­silochus takes the floor and also speaks against Euripi­des, but even­tu­ally tries to sup­port him. With English sur­titles Di­rec­tor: Van­ge­lis Theodor­opou­los
