This represents a considerable support in a very important year, not only for the relaunch of classical representations at the Greek Theatre after a long suspension because of the restrictions due to the pandemic, but also for the centenary of the relaunch of classical representations at the Greek Theatre after World War I and the Spanish flu pandemic.
Starting from July 3, the magic atmosphere of the Greek Theatre of Syracuse has revived with the debut of Aeschylus’s “Choephori Eumenides” (July 3) and Euripides’ “Bacchantes” (July 4), and with a new multimedia display titled “Oresteia Act II. The relaunch of classical theatre representations after the Spanish flu pandemic”, which will remain opened to the public up to 30 September 2022, and will then move to other cities in Italy and abroad.
“We are really proud contribute to the relaunch of classical representations at the Greek Theatre of Syracuse, a symbol of our past and of classical culture – commented Alessandro Dragonetti, Partner of Grant Thornton – our contribution aims to represent a concrete support to theatre, which is one of the sectors that were most affected by the pandemic and which represents an important cultural and economic resource for our country”.
“We are happy to support the reopening of the theatre season at the Syracuse Theatre, which is in line with our business philosophy aimed at giving attention and safeguarding the historical and cultural heritage. Now more than ever – explained Fabio Gallassi, Partner of Grant Thornton – culture represents a strategic asset thanks to its function of social cohesion, which is crucial to start again and look to the future with a higher optimism”.
