2013-2014 National Theatre of Greece
Golfo - Spiridon Peresiadis
Launch: Theatre of the Society for Macedonian Studies, 10/10/2013
This dramatic romance by Spyridon Peresiades tells a tragic love story set in the idealized image of the Greek countryside of 1893. In the mountain village where the waters of the Styx flow, where according to the ancient myths the gateway to the Underworld was located, where mortals and immortals took the sacred oath, Golfo and Tasos, two young children, swear eternal love. Golfo, faithful to her oath, refuses the rich man who wants to marry her, but Tasos, breaking his own, agrees to marry the wealthy young woman with whom he has been matched. When he changes his mind, it will be too late... The National Theatre’s successful production offers a fresh look at a play that has taken on a life of its own in Greek theatre and will be presented for only two performances in the framework of the Dimitria, in collaboration with the National Theatre of Northern Greece.
