On the occasion of Frank Castorf’s production
and Maria Callas’ 100th birth anniversary,
the Epidaurus exhibition hall became active again
after a 22-year hiatus.
The Museum’s re-opening was inaugurated
with a periodic exhibition dedicated to Medea,
focusing of the presence of the tragic heroine
at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus since 1956,
when the National Theatre of Greece production of Medea
was presented, directed by Minotis
with the legendary Katina Paxinou in the title role.
This periodic exhibition includes prized exhibits
from the Festival archive
and other cultural organizations and institutions
which have staged Medea in Epidaurus.
A special retrospective to productions of Euripides’ tragedy
held at the most iconic national landmark of Ancient Drama
from the 1950s onwards.
