Ten hours of theatre on the problems of people who lived 2,500 years ago? Toiling through dramas featuring Prometheus, Achilles, Cassandra, Elektra and Ulysses? Grappling with the mighty gods, the curse of doomed, irreconcilable conflicts and never-ending wars?

Modern Greeks no longer want to be victims of fate, governed by external powers. They prefer to wrangle with the world of the gods and mythology even if every path seems fatal and laden with guilt. People face different problems nowadays, don’t they? But the first democracy in the world, which was founded in 5 BC in Athens, dealt with these issues in the arena of theatre, which was both a place of entertainment and to meet, a site of collective emancipation. Former audiences in Athens discovered the ancient mythologies in comedies, tragedies and satyr plays, and which were brought to life by the performers. Director Christopher Rüping and the performers of the Münchner Kammerspiele now take a turn at depicting the characters, plays and political circumstances of Greek drama and approach the issues and conflicts of the ancient world from a contemporary perspective.

Catering on site is possible during the three small breaks. The price includes finger food by Serkan Tunca in the foyer (only during the small breaks).

Menu bookings for the big break can be made for our gastronomies Kulisse and Conviva. Not included in the ticket price, approx. 15 to 20 euros plus drinks. Please make reservations in advance.

In addition, the food truck of Herz und Schnauze - Apen-Essen will be in the courtyard of the Schauspiel.
