Twice honoured with the prestigious EFFE label as one of Europe’s finest festivals, the International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama takes place throughout the month of July at open-air amphitheatres in Limassol, Pafos and Nicosia that pay homage to the origins of ancient Greek theatre. Theatre troupes from across the globe perform their own unique adaptations of plays by the Great Greeks without compromising the authenticity of the original plays, while also adding an original element derived from the participating country’s culture. The full programme of plays and performance times can be viewed on the event website nearer the date.
