"Women of Passion, Women of Greece:" Theatre show "featuring" Maria Callas, Melina Mercouri and Medea

Women of Passion, Women of Greece Maria Callas

Three emblematic female Greek figures, Maria Callas, Melina Mercouri and the mythological Medea are the central heroines of the English-language play "Women of Passion, Women of Greece", which returns to the Theatrical Carriage of the Train in Roof, from May 27, for only ten performances, after the successful world tour.


The tragic heroine of the ancient drama Medea meets the two great women of modern Greece, Maria Callas and Melina Mercouri. The three of them travel on a 1950 train with the starting point of the journey in Ancient Greece and the terminal station in present-day Greece.

A common feature unites their different paths, passion. Passion for life, passion for love, passion for creation, passion for freedom.

History, culture, art, the strength of the Greek soul, the struggles for democracy are brought to life by an actress and a musician and accompany us on a journey of creative memory, humour and emotion, where Greece is at the same time the starting point and the final destination, with intermediate stations.

The show, in its long run, was presented to Greek and English-speaking viewers of all ages from all over the world, deeply touching the hearts of everyone and receiving enthusiastic reviews for the strong and moving text by Eugenia Arsenis, the sensitive and inventive direction of Tatiana Lygari and the excellent performance of Evelina Arapidis in the iconic roles of Medea, Maria Callas and Melina Mercouri.
