Launched in 2017 by the Athens-Attica & Argosaronic Hotel Association, the program aims to introduce the works of great writers from Greek antiquity to both residents and visitors of the Greek capital through theatrical performances.
The “The Stones Speak” performances at Hadrian’s Library will take place on July 1, 2, 7, 8 and 9 between 11:00 and 13:00 and will run in Modern Greek, French and English.
Created by Greek director Efi Theodorou, composer Nikos Platanos and the Delos Drama School student actors, the performances will take spectators on a philosophical journey on love, life and democracy through texts ranging from Homer’s Odyssey to Sophocle’s Antigone among others.
“The Stones Speak” program runs under the auspices of the Tourism Ministry, the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO), the Region of Attica, the Municipality of Athens and the Hellenic Hotels Chamber.
The first month of performances of “The Stones Speak” program ran on on June 21 with a special presentation at the Athens International Airport, celebrating the summer solstice.
