It will provide participants the opportunity to revisit some of his most acclaimed works, from the emblematic Bacchae, which premiered on 17 June 1986 at the Ancient Stadium of Delphi, to the Trojan Women, shown on 7 July 2017 at the Pafos Ancient Odeon as a production of "Pafos 2017-European Capital of Culture".
