Periodic Exhibition


On the occasion of Frank Castorf’s production and Maria Callas’ 100th birth anniversary, the Epidaurus exhibition hall will be active again after a 22-year hiatus, thanks to the invaluable support of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports. The Museum’s re-opening will be inaugurated with a periodic exhibition dedicated to Medea, focusing of the presence of the tragic heroine at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus since 1956, when the National Theatre of Greece production of Medea was presented, directed by Minotis with the legendary Katina Paxinou in the title role.

This periodic exhibition, open to the public throughout the performances at the Ancient Theatre, will include prized exhibits from the Festival archive and other cultural organizations and institutions (National Theatre of Greece, Cyprus Theatre Organization, Theatron Athinaion of Tzeni Karezi & Kostas Kazakos, Karolos Koun Greek Art Theatre, Desmoi, Spyros A. Evangelatos Amphitheatre, Municipal and Regional Theatre of Patras, Aplo Theatre, to name a few), which have staged Medea in Epidaurus. A special retrospective to productions of Euripides’ tragedy held at the most iconic national landmark of Ancient Drama from the 1950s onwards.
