Theatrical performance in English
The theatrical production “Women of Passion, Women of Greece”, that moved a wide variety of different audiences thanks to the distinctive directorial approach, accompanied by a powerful play, great acting as well as exceptional live music and impressive video design, continues its successful journey at the Theater Wagon of the Railway Carriage Theater on Saturday the 10th of September 2016 at 19:15.
Three mythical female figures, tragic Medea and
the two contemporary Greek “priestesses”, Maria Callas and Melina Mercouri, make a symbolic train tour from ancient to modern Greece. Three legends of art and life whose paths are different but share the same common characteristic: they are passionate women, incorporating the temperament and values of Greek spirit: passion for life, passion for love, passion for art and creativity, passion for freedom and democracy.
Medea, the tragic figure of ancient Greek drama, blinded by her deep love for her husband, murdered her own children. Maria Callas, the internationally celebrated opera diva, devoted her life to music and let her fate be sealed by a “fatal” romance. Μelina Mercouri, one of the most beloved Greek actresses, singer and politician, who starred in the most well-known international films, fought for culture and democracy.
An actress and a musician meet on stage to bring to life significant historical moments and guide us through this imaginary voyage, where Greece is its departure and arrival at the same time with stops in the hearts of people around the world.
