The story of Alexander the Great, one of the most prominent figures of world history is staged in Hellenic Cosmos for the theatrical winter season 2017-18. The play is based on the titular book of Nikos Kazantzakis, who depicted the Great General in all his glory: Alexander the Human, the God, the Mysticist, the Soldier, the Visionary - Alexander the Great!
As we follow Alexander's course from the age of fifteen to the end of his life, through his character we discover the greatest virtues of the Greeks. The myth balances with the historical truth, offering a rich spectacle with a breath-taking plot, both educational and amusing, addressing families as well as people of all ages.
Nana Nikolaou has created a brand new theatrical adaptation, a stunning production with action, whimsical scenery, theatrical fencing, original music score, video-art installations and a skilled cast of talented actors with Memos Mpegnis in the role of the Macedonian King.
The Foundation for the Hellenic World has taken on the production of the aspiring theatrical play for the THEATER of Cultural Center Hellenic Cosmos, which has been established as a modern cultural center where the public can acquire a better knowledge of the Greek history and culture.
