“The Persians” has been regarded as a diachronic tragedy. It addresses universal issues and points out long-lasting values while it also examines in a fascinating way the themes of hybris, human arrogance and dignity, as well as the freedom of man. It offers a diachronic moral lesson in regard to the strong will of each and every tyrant that, historically speaking, has brought war and human pain.
Giannis Fertis (Darius), Akis Sakellariou (Atossa), Lazaros Georgakopoulos (Messenger), Giorgos Kolovos (Xerxes) are the performance’s protagonists.
Starting with a performance at the Forest Theatre (Theatro Dassous) of Thessaloniki, "The Persians" will travel all around Greece, and will be presented in several great ancient theatres of the country (Philippi, Dion, Delphi, Elis).
On August 15 and 16, “The Persians” will be performed at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus. The last performances will be held back in Thessaloniki on September 12 and 13, 2014.
This production of “The Persians” is under the auspices of the Greek National Tourism Organisation.
