Aristophanes: Lysistrata
AtHENS & EPIdaURuS FESTIVAL 2010 |

National Theatre of Greece – Yiannis Kakleas

“With neither husband nor adulterer”: Lysistrata of Athens undertakes to “undo the army” by stirring every Greek woman to rebel against the war that is devouring their menfolk. Swearing an oath of abstinence and withholding their sexual favours, they will force their husbands to embrace peace.
Written with Aristophanic sparkling humour in the darkest days of the Peloponnesian War, Lysistrata (411 BC) has shone down the millennia as a hymn to peace, love and womanhood.
Giannis Kakleas directs an outstanding cast in this National Theatre of Greece production of Aristophanes’ most daring comedy.
