”Agamemnon” – National Theater of Greece Drama School, Athens

The National Theater of Greece Drama School in Athens was founded in 1930. Many of its alumni throughout the years have grown to become  one of the most famous theater and film actors, and some of them become respected professors.

At the ISTF “Danail Chirpansky”, the Greek students will perform the play of  Aeschylus “Agamemnon”.

“Agamemnon”. Is the first part of the Anti que trilogy “Oresteia”. Several topics intertwine in the three texts that fill the plot and motivate the characters. Maybe the most obvious one in “Agamemnon” is revenge: Clytmenestra kills her husband Agamemnon to avenge their daughter, sacrificed in the name of the God from her own father. Thus begins the whole trilogy which treats the problems of responsibility, morals, revenge, salvation.

What parallel do the Shota Rustaveli Theater and Film School students do with contemporary Greece can be seen on October 2, at Drama Theater “Geo Milev”in Stara Zagora.
