Τhe Winter’s Tale

2018-2019 National Theatre of Northern Greece
Τhe Winter’s Tale - William Shakespeare
Opening: Theatre of the Society for Macedonian Studies, 16/11/2018

A dark fairy-tale, full of images and emotions, where time slows down and the heroes’ defence, strength and resistance subside. It is the story of King Leontes, who, suspecting that his wife is cheating on him and blinded by envy, will be driven to utter misery and loneliness. But one day, a big change comes: Leontes comes out of his lethargy, he becomes wiser and light overcomes darkness, because the power of life is invincible…
