“Troades” by Euripides
City of Athens Cultural Center |

One of the most well known tragedies that have been saved was chosen to be presented using as a guide its strong timelessness. The suffering caused by war and the calamities of being a refugee has always been a part in the history of humanity since the Trojan War until today and unfortunately, it goes beyond geographic borders. Any kind of authority that is exercised with arrogance has had, has and will have disastrous consequences for the people.

In 415 b.c, Euripides chooses to talk about all this through the eyes of the women captives of Troy, that are getting ready, as slaves, to abandon their motherland and follow the Greek victors to a new, unknown land. The sharpness of the denunciation along with the touching poetic sensitivity, distinguish the play as one of the masterpieces not only of the Greek drama, but of the international cultural heritage.
