Memories of Ancient Drama. Exhibition of Costumes - N.T.N.G. 30 Years in Epidaurus
Museum of Epidauros, 20/05/2005

Costumes have a story to tell. Bearing valuable witness to theatrical events, costumes tell a tale of dramatic adventures.This year's exhibition, organised by the Hellenic Festival at the Epidaurus Theatre Museum, shows costumes from the rich troves of the National Theatre of Nothern Greece (NTNG), providing us with a guided trour through the 30-year theatrial history of the NTNG in Epidaurus. Trends from years gone by, traditions carried forward and the courage to break with the past are reflected in the costumes on show. An essential part of any performance, costumes become works of art after the curtain falls.
