Hercules, the mythical figure - played by Greek pop icon, Sakis Rouvas premieres at the Pantheon theater. A modern, edgy retelling of the classical feats of the great Greek hero Hercules. Filled with timeless imagery, the production demanded a score of animated sequences for projection, as backgrounds and to show movement across distance and time.
From the original text, written by poet Stratis Paschalis, play by while Professor John Lignadis. Directed by designer Apollo Papatheocharis. Music by George Theofanous, lyrics by Niki Papatheocharis and composition by George Poulios.
