The “International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama” is a distinct cultural event with an international character, hosting in Cyprus -for more than 25 years- theatre companies from all over the world to present ancient Greek drama in their own language. Performances bear an intense coloring of the performers’ country and the mosaic that is being created opens a dialogue with contemporary stages and an international audience.
