Epidaurus - Ancient Theatre
Medea’s a man! Giorgos Kimoulis returns to Epidaurus to play Euripides’ archetypal heroine in a unique production with an all-male, masked cast.
A tragedy with modernistic elements, Medea (431 BC) addresses the eternal struggle between Man and Woman as well as the clash between two cultures. A complex, alluring creature, the princess from Colchis, a foreigner in Corinth, experiences the ultimate betrayal at Jason’s hands. Medea the witch vows to take her revenge and comes up with the most inhuman punishment of all.
