Greek and invited productions, partnerships and shows by foreign artists will be included in the 2019 Athens and Epidaurus Festival program, artistic director Vangelis Theodoropoulos announced on Tuesday at the Athens Conservatoire.

Theodoropoulos said that the programme that will be staged in the summer of 2019 at Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, Pireos 260 and many others spaces around Athens and Piraeus, will be pluralistic, with social sensitivities and centered on diversity. He also stressed that, for the first time, director Bob Wilson will be part of the Festival with a production of Oedipus at Epidaurus theatre.

Asked if he knows whether the Minister of Culture Myrsini Zorba has the intention of renewing his term as Festival artistic director, which ends in April, Theodoropoulos replied that this is up to the Minister. He added that, should Zorba decide for Theodoropulos to remain, she will first need to “resolve some serious problems”, which he listed in a recent letter addressed to the Minister.
