The Frogs

April 26 – May 5, 2013


Written by Aristophanes
Directed by Orlando Pabotoy

Production created in collaboration with the ensemble.

The God Dionysus, patron of the Drama, dissatisfied with the condition of the Art of Tragedy in the world, descends to the underworld disguised as Heracles to bring back the poets of old. Music, physical-theater, songs and illusions and an ensemble of gifted performers tell the story of Dionysus’ fearful expedition to re-cover the forgotten values of poetry.

“daring and energetic, weird and wonderful”
