Centerpiece of Birds: A Festival Inspired by Aristophanes

MAY 2-13, 2018

Tickets start at $40

Following its sold-out World Premiere at the Ancient Theater of Epidaurus and in Athens, Greece, this feast-for-the-senses, vibrant restaging of Aristophanes’ ancient classic brings two Athenians to the country of the birds. Fed up with their city and the gods who rule over it, the mortals ask the birds to build them a new utopia that “embraces our inherent need to dream and offers hope for decadence.” (Art Forum)

Performed in Greek with English supertitles.
Runtime: Approx. 120 minutes with no intermission
