National Theatre of Northern Greece – Giannis Rigas
Fed up with the political, social and financial corruption of the city, Pesthetaerus and Euelpides go looking for Tereus, formerly a human and currently transformed into a Hoopoe, in order to learn from him and from the other high-flying and perhaps knowledgeable birds if there is a peaceful place where they could live. Together they intend to found a new republic, somewhere between heaven and earth, which will hold power over both humans and gods, and where birds will have their rightful place.
Aristophanes’ beloved, ageless comedy is presented in a National Theatre of Northern Greece production, directed by Giannis Rigas, translated by K. H. Myris and featuring an excellent cast. Taxiarchis Chanos and Christos Stergioglou portray the main characters, joined by a large cast of actors and dancers.
