More about the event:

With Apollo’s assistance, Admetus, King of Pherae, has secured an unusual privilege: when his time comes to die, he will be spared, provided he can find someone to take his place in the Underworld. But who loves Admetus enough to give up their life for him? In the end, no one volunteers to die on his behalf except for his young wife, Alcestis, who bids farewell to life and embarks on a journey to the Underworld. Everyone in the palace mourns the loss of their devoted queen, who only one hero can bring back to life, by taking on Death and besting him.

 

"...the production is one of the few of which one might say it attempts to renovate Euripides - doing so in a refined and undetected, as well as ingeniously inventive way."  Antonis Petridis, Lotofagoi

 

"...a small miracle.  An abosulty fresh attempt absolutley utilising the satirical and tragic characteristics of the play."  Y. Savvinides, Phileleftheros.
