Christoph Willibald Gluck
ERT National Symphony Orchestra & City of Athens Chorus
The Municipality of Athens and Opanda present "Iphigenia in Tauridis", a play by the Olympia Theater at the Pallas Theater.
The masterpiece of the composer who renewed opera, Christoph Willibald Gluck, “Iphigenia in Tauris” is presented in a new production, with an outstanding cast of distinguished opera artists, and in musical direction by George Petrou. The fresh view of Thanos Papakonstantinou, theatrical director, and the scenery and costumes by Niki Psychogiou will revive the ancient myth on the stage of Olympia through Gluck's intensely dramatic music which eloquenty depicts the particular soul and character of the drama's heroes.
An exotic setting, a sister that has been lost, a crazy brother, a human sacrifice, the suspense, the danger, the divine intervention: characteristics which, added up, ensure a fascinating tragedy. The opera “Iphigenia in Tauris” by Gluck, based on the eponymous Greek tragedy by Euripides, tells the story of the turning point and the ending of the myths of Iphigenia and Orestes.
Strobe lights are used in the performance.
