Lauded for his many hilarious productions of Aristophanes comedies, director Yannis Kakleas returns to Epidaurus, venturing into ancient Greek tragedy for the very first time. The artist will present Euripides’ Orestes, in a modern Greek translation by Giorgos Chimonas. A play replete with conflicts, plot twists, apologies, and sharp political commentary, Orestes poses questions about generational and gender relations, and social cohesion, brought to life through a stellar cast.
