Athens & Epidaurus Festival






The main characters of Ghosts attend the opening of the Alving Foundation, launched in honour of the late Captain Alving. The foundation is to be donated to the city. We are watching the characters the day after the original play’s denouement, standing on the threshold of an institution, a symbol of personal and social fulfilment.
Ibsen’s classic drama is reimagined as a crossover between the original play and new, original texts, shedding lights to hidden aspects of the characters. Their past, their inner landscape and their complicated relationships are illuminated in a startling, almost paradoxical manner. The main characters, Manders, Alving, Oswald, Regina, are confronted with their fears, desires, dreams, nightmares, their personal and social ghosts. Will the characters finally be able to step into the light or will darkness remain their inevitable destination?
