Greek Festival: Spyridon Peresiadis, Golfo

2013 August 16
Epidaurus - Ancient Theatre


Peresiadis, Golfo at the ancient theatre of EPidaurus, August 2013

Golfo and Tassos in three acts: love, betrayal, death. In Peresiadis’ bucolic romance written in 1893, Golfo and Tassos pledge undying love. Golfo stays true, Tassos betrays her. The pain of love betrayed is assuaged with death for Golfo, just as it is for Shakespeare’s Juliet.

For one night only at Epidaurus, Nikos Karathanos immerses us in a pitchblack dream enacted on the slopes of Mount Helmos, retaining the 15-syllable lines, but updating the work visually to give it a new lease of life.
