The distinguished Tullio Solenghi directs the most renowned comedy of Aristophanes, Lysistrata, produced by the National Institute of Ancient Drama (Fondazione INDA) of the Syracuse Greek Theatre Festival, featuring the awarded Elisabetta Pozzi as Lysistrata in a production of superb cast and collaborators.

As the Peloponnesian War rages, keeping the men away from their homes, Lysistrata convinces the women of Athens, Sparta and other cities to take matters into their own hands. During the women’s assembly, Lysistrata suggests that they abstain from their marital duties, in the form of a sex strike, until a peace treaty is signed from both war fronts. Even though there are some initial reactions, the women are finally convinced by Lysistrata and the Spartan Lampito and come together in devising their plan. Their action has immediate results and the men’s reactions are many and varied. After setbacks, conflicts and negotiations, peace is finally achieved.
