Ancient theatre of Mytilene revives with Aristophanes’ Birds

The Hellenistic-Roman era ancient theatre of Lesvos revived on Friday with the comedy of Aristophanes “Ornithes” (Birds) by Mytilene’s theatre group Commedia dell’ Arte.

The performances will be repeated on Saturday and on Sunday.

The specific events are rare in the archaeological site of the Ancient theatre of Mytilene which even if it is totally destroyed, with only exception some minor digs, it has never been systematically excavated.
