Baccanti di Padrissa, ma senza Euripide

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Bacchantes of Padrissa, but without Euripides

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review


Review of the show Baccanti of Euripides, directed by C. Padrissa, July-August 2021, 56th season at the Greek-Roman Theater of Syracuse. This interpretation is more attentive to the scenographic and spectacular effects than to a modern and faithful rendering of the ancient play of Euripides, whose message about Dionysus and the Bacchae appears completely confused and disregarded. The distinction between the Bacchae of Asia and the Cytheron and the scenes of irony and grotesque comedy that intertwine with the tragic text are lost. Also the meaning of Dionysus' mission to Thebes is misunderstood.
