"No one listens to my laments! My father's slaughter is forgotten, my mother sleeps with his murderer and my brother melts in the foreign desert, I myself, persecuted from the house, I slowly melt, unfortunate in this cage"
The Center for Performing Arts MITOS presents the rarely played ancient Greek drama "Electra" of Euripides. It is a story of a crime and revenge. This show will be played in six villages in Cyprus in August.
The program is from the Cultural Decentralization 2018 of the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture.
Electra lives in a deserted farmhouse outside Argos. She is the daughter of the murdered king Agamemnon. She is married to an insignificant villager and she suffers. Electra mourns all day and all night.
Her brother Orestes returns but secretly. He has come to get revenge for the murder of their father. The two siblings are preparing fraudulent plans to kill their mother Clytemnestra and her lover Egystho.
The tragedy "Electra" of Euripides was first introduced in 413 BC, most likely after Aeschylus' ’’Choefores’’ and Sophocles' Electra. However, Euripides changes the form and content, but also shifts the meaning of tragic into the human bullet. He analyzes the soul of his heroes and the moral dilemmas that appear that remain typical until today.
