The Bacchae by Euripides

Tuesday, 25th July and Friday, 28th July at 9pm

The award-winning Israeli director, Yair Sherman, who has been awarded  with the “Golden Porcupine – Director of the Year” in 2016, will present Euripides’ Bacchae in a contemporary reading of the play, an exciting directing approach and a highly aesthetic artistic result.

Performances will be offered as part of International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama in Limassol and Paphos.

In Bacchae, one of the most complete and enigmatic plays of world dramaturgy, Dionysus is starring as a humanized god, penetrating as a new force to enforce his own worship in Phebes.

God Dionysus abolishes the boundaries between people, social order, gender, age, and even the difference between human and divine qualities. The city that denies his existence will experience the power and dominance of God through a mysterious, dark and bloody nightmare.
