Sunday, March 18

Yeroskipou’s Yiannakis Taliotis Lyceum’s Theatre Group presents Euripides ‘Iphigenia in Aulis’, in Greek, at the Markideon Theatre on Sunday, March 18.
The Greek fleet is waiting at Aulis, Boeotia, with its ships ready to sail for Troy, but it is unable to depart due to a strange lack of wind. After consulting the seer Calchas, the Greek leaders learn that this is no mere meteorological abnormality but rather the will of the goddess Artemis, who is withholding the winds because Agamemnon has caused her offence. Calchas informs the general that in order to appease the goddess, he must sacrifice his eldest daughter, Iphigenia.
Tickets to the 8pm performance are priced at €5, at the door.
The Markideon Theatre is situated at 27, Andrea Geroudi St., Paphos. .
