Winter's Tale at the National Theatre of Northern Greece


The “disease” of envy, the obsession of revenge, the power of forgiveness. All these characteristics in one of the most beloved plays, written by one of the greatest playwrights of all times, William Shakespeare, translated by Nikos Chatzopoulos, seen here through the eyes of the great Romanian director Silviu Purcărete.

The ingenious Shakespearean narration of an intense story about love, envy and abandonment. A dark fairy-tale, full of images and emotions, where time slows down and the heroes’ defence, strength and resistance subside. It is the story of King Leontes, who, suspecting that his wife is cheating on him and blinded by envy, will be driven to utter misery and loneliness. But one day, a big change comes: Leontes comes out of his lethargy, he becomes wiser and light overcomes darkness, because the power of life is invincible…

With English Surtitles (every Saturday. From 24/11).
