Theatre: Racine’s “Phèdre” – Nopigia 3rd August and Agios Antonios 4th August

Racine’s classic tragedy, “Phédre”, a masterpiece of  French 17th century literature, stems from Plutarch and Virgil and its subject is inspired by Euripides’s “Hippolytus” and Seneca’s “Phaedra”. The unlawful love of Phaedra for Hippolytus, the son of her husband Theseus, is revived through the new translation of poet and translator Stratis Paschalis. The translation  captures the morphology of the original play through a modern language.

8-10 August Phaedra Chania


I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
