"Golfo" by Spyridon Peresiadis at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus.
The play starts at 9.00 pm
“He wanted her. She really wanted him. They both die in the end. Lovely play.” Golfo and Tassos in three acts: love, betrayal, death. In Peresiadis’ bucolic romance written in 1893, Golfo and Tassos pledge undying love. Golfo stays true, Tassos betrays her. The pain of love betrayed is assuaged with death for Golfo, just as it is for Shakespeare’s Juliet. For one night only at Epidaurus, Nikos Karathanos immerses us in a pitchblack dream enacted on the slopes of Mount Helmos, retaining the 15-syllable lines, but updating the work visually to give it a new lease of life.
