With the fresh directorial vision of Thanos Papakonstantinou, the sets and costumes of Niki Psychogiou, the ancient myth will be brought to life on the stage of the Olympia, through Gluck's intensely dramatic music which eloquently captures the particular psyche of the characters in the drama.
An exotic location, a lost sister, a mad brother, human sacrifice, agony, danger, divine intervention: these characteristics certainly make for a fascinating tragedy. Gluck’s opera Iphigenia in Tauris is based on Euripides' tragedy of the same name.
