Theatre, the art of arts
Dramatists, actors and roles, settings, costumes and masks, colours, lights and music co-exist in FHW's exhibition, where the theatre
is examined as the combination of many artists on the stage in order to create the visual and sound environment of the performance. The theatre is presented through a new perspective, providing visitors with the opportunity to discover aspects that were not visible at first and to follow the "adventure" of a play from its printed form to the stage. Important theatrical "schools", significant play writers, influential plays and remarkable roles are presented
through texts, photographs of -mainly- Greek erformances, costumes and extracts from plays, familiarize visitors with the history of the western theatre, but also of the Greek one from the Classical period to the present days.
