The Revival of Ancient Drama in Modern Greek Theatre

The study of the phenomenon of the revival of ancient drama in Modern Greece is carried out by the project of the History of Modern Greek Theatre in the context of a wider project of study of the Ancient Theatre. Part of the Athens Press has been card-indexed, as has a considerable number of projects, albums and volumes dedicated to the revival of the ancient theatre. The result of the project is the creation of an electronic archive of performances of ancient drama in modern times which covers the period from 1817 until today.
