The Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus


 

Old Epidavros small Port & Magical Summer Nights …

Breathing sea breeze on the coast of Saronikos bay before heading for the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus,which is situated within the archaeological site of the Sanctuary of Asklepios in  Peloponnese.

Balmy Nights at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus

On a Balmy Summer Night before the performance,”The Acharnians” by Aristophanes,and thinking that :
” No man is rich enough to buy back his past … ” Oscar Wilde
~ The Theatre of Epidaurus was built in the 4th century BC ,by Polykleitos the Younger, according to the Phytagorean System-and is the best surving theatre from ancient Greece.It has amazing acoustics and sits in a canyon surrounded by pine trees.Love the view of the nearby mountains and the chirping sound of the nocturnal crickets that accompany the chorus … ~

“How many ages hence
Shall this our lofty scene be acted over In states unborn and accents yet unknown … “

 

Waiting for the Performance ...

The Market Place opens and desperation leads to all kind of merchandise and commodities put up for Sale ...

The Market Place opens and desperation leads to all kind of merchandise and commodities put up for Sale …

The Acharnians … by Aristophanes

Exploring the Scenic Aristophanean Form While Political corruption rules … “Dikaiopolis” takes on an initiative for Peace,Justice and Meritocracy… The Market Place opens and desperation leads to all kind of merchandise and commodities put up for Sale …
Timeless Plays … ,very timeless,I am Afraid … Tragedy and Politics in Aristophanes’ The Acharnians ~ Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus ~ Presented in Greek with English subtitles ~
Aristophanes might be considered among the first authors to display interest in domestic economy, by turning the Athenians’ focus to the welfare of the “oikos” and its importance for the prosperity of the “polis”…

 

Great performances take place on the stage of Epidaurus every summer and I would also like to make mention of  one more performance that took place in 2011 and it was beyond successful …

The Old Vic Theatre moves to the Ancient Epidaurus Theatre ~ Kevin Spacey was literally born to play Richard III …

The Old Vic Theatre from London to Epidaurus

The Old Vic Theatre from London to Epidaurus

 

Dating to the 4th century B.C. and arranged in 55 semi-circular rows, remains the great masterwork of Polykleitos the Younger.It is renowned for its exceptional acoustics and can hold up to 14,000 spectators,who are able to hear actors and musicians–unamplified–from even the back row of the architectural masterpiece.
It was here in 2011 that Kevin Spacey and his acting troupe put on Shakespeare’s “Richard III” ,directed by Sam Mendes.
After his performance, Spacey posted the following comment on his Twitter account: “Never felt anything like performing R3 on the stage of the Epidaurus. Will carry experience with me rest of my life.” Spacey acted for 3 nights in front of around 28,000 spectators and each night he received a roaring standing ovation from a grateful audience. Obviously, Spacey was equally grateful for the opportunity to act on one of the world’s most special stages, the Epidaurus Theatre.Kevin Spacey couldn’t find a role in Shakespeare better suited to him than Richard III – Sam Mendes said ” I’d always felt that Spacey was born to play this part ” …
” Why, I, in this weak piping time of peace,Have no delight to pass away the time,Unless to spy my shadow in the sun And descant on mine own deformity:
And therefore, since I cannot prove a lover,To entertain these fair well-spoken days,I am determined to prove a villain And hate the idle pleasures of these days.
Plots have I laid, inductions dangerous, prophecies, libels and dreams … ”

* And I was thinking to myself that dreams,omens,prophecies & theories may also reflect a culture’s disturbances & fears …
Besides,Immoral Actions have Inevitable consequences for the wrongdoers … Haven’t they ?
But why both innocent and corrupt die ? Does any Divine Moral Justice exist or do we contribute to our fate … ?

Timeless and thought-provoking plays at one of the greatest monuments of Greek Antiquity, the famous theatre at the Asklepieion of Epidaurus, the finest and most renowned of its kind.

 

And the Chorus prayed for the Glory that “WAS” Greece …

Could You take me to some cavern for mine hiding,
In the hill-tops where the Sun scarce hath trod;
Or a cloud make the home of mine abiding,
As a bird among the bird-droves of God.
And the song  goes on to carry the imagination to a spot
Where a voice of living waters never ceaseth
In God’s quiet garden by the sea,
And Earth, the ancient life-giver, increaseth
Joy among the meadows, like a tree. (Euripides: Hippolytus )

” No man is rich enough to buy back his past … ” Oscar Wilde

 

But the Blue of the Greek Sea & the Sky is Ours,it’s our own Blue,Nobody can Touch it,Whatever it  happens …

Timeless Plays & Allegorical words …

Our Own Blue ...

Our Own Blue …

 

Why the cries ? No Crisis can Touch the Blue of the Sky,of the Ocean …

    “But the Blue of the Greek Sea & the Sky is Ours,it’s our own Blue,Nobody can Touch it,Whatever it happens …” These words are as an anthem, a rallying cry, for the people of many nations, including my own, faced with the callous dismantling of our society for the profit of a few.

  19. Today is the day I have time to devote to read your post indepth.. In fact I read it twice through.
    I have not been to this wonderful amphitheatre but I have been in one in Cyprus.. And with guided tour found it fascinating.. How it was also a market town and we were even shown what were the Public toilets which had running water beneath their stone seats.. pot pipes channelled water and it was just an awesome place to sit on the steps and connect in one’s mind with those ancient souls who had sat right where I was sitting..

    No wonder Kevin Spacey felt so thrilled with his own performance as he too must have re-connected back in time as he enacted those wonderful lines of Shakespeare..

    I feel also for your lines here also Doda when you said
    ” * And I was thinking to myself that dreams,omens,prophecies & theories may also reflect a culture’s disturbances & fears …
    Besides,Immoral Actions have Inevitable consequences for the wrongdoers … Haven’t they ?
    But why both innocent and corrupt die ? Does any Divine Moral Justice exist or do we contribute to our fate … ?”

    If only people understood dear Doda how our thoughts vibrations impact upon the world we see.. Is it any wonder we see so much violence and hear of so much bloodshed when it is constantly being projected out in the world.. Not only via the media.. But lets think of all the TV shows, All the Films, All the virtual reality Games on Games consoles and how our younger generation is being geared up to accept violence and killing as the norm… And how dispassionate and detached some of them are as play out their fantasies within the reality of this world..

    Generations are now growing with more ingrained Fear, as we divide ourselves further still separating ourselves putting labels upon those who are different or appear a threat..

    Like the Poor Immigrants seeking safety and sanctuary from the horrors of their own daily lives.. We FEAR them.. why? because we are told and have grown up believing there is not enough.. And our Greed to keep what is ours overpowers what should be compassion and a time to share..

    The Greed of the World is destroying the planet.. Both Flora and Fauna as well as our human lives..

    Why do the innocent die?? I believe there is a plan at work.. We do not always see this plan, and can not begin to understand Karma and how that in itself plays out Doda..
    Have you read the Book Many Lives, Many Masters? Dr Brian Weiss. There is a free down load on the net I noticed of this amazing account of inbetween lives … 🙂

    In the mean time we have to believe that those who take their transit do so knowing they are aiding our Earth’s own evolutionary changes.. It is said this period would be chaotic but it is also a time of cleansing..
    Not only our own Earth’s pollution, but our corruption and ways of being are also going to be tested and brought to the fore..
    Many more things will be exposed in due course dear Doda and all is part if you like of its own Karmic cleansing.. As we clear out evil and the Darkside of our natures and bring in the light of Love once again..
    This period of time is when we chose to be born.. And Many more people who are the ones who are facing such turmoil now are stronger even than us… For they also chose their pathway.. Even though our paths are not always set in stone.. For each thought each action and reaction contribute to the changes…

    This is why I believe dear Doda that our thoughts sent out of compassion, and love.. Not in judgement or Anger and hatred.. Help to alter and bring about that Change which will enable us to move forward with less bloodshed..

    I pray constantly to those who cause pain and send them love, as hard as that is to understand.. IF we add only our negative vibrations we then are only adding to that mixture..

    Loved your post.. and sorry I went on and ON and ON.. 😀 ❤ Love… But I think you will understand my thoughts xxx Hugs Sue ❤

      Presumably,you’re talking about the magnificent Greco-Roman (Amphi)Theatre in the Sanctuary of Apollo Hylates (Apollo of the woodlands) as it is mentioned in Homer which is in Limassol.Thank God the Romans didn’t alter the Epidaurus Theatre at all.
      Glad to see that my allegorical thoughts found fertile ground and were the cause of your long and so thoughtful comment.You went on and on developing your compassionate thoughts and your concern about our decaying world,our corrupted societies.When there are spaces like that we will never stop conveying caustic messages to the wrongdoers who,at least,cannot conquer our free thinking at the moment.We have to show to the oncoming generations that there is a different and glorious world out there,where social justice and equality could prevail.The situation is chaotic worldwide,but it’s a good timing for cleansing,for a better tomorrow where positive, evolutionary changes might occur.Thank you for suggesting Many Lives, Many Masters? Dr Brian Weiss book,I’ll check it out,you are a reliable source.I’m so sorrry I didn’t respond earlier,but you know,I was walking in the healing forest,the place you sent me,my friend.We can’t live without meditation,without spiritual food and fresh, “cleansing” Ether.Enjoy your mini holiday with family & friends 🙂 .:。✿*゚ Sending Love & Kisses your way from this end .:。✿*゚ ❤ ,Doda 🙂 xxx ❤
