Italian director Romeo Castellucci draws inspiration from French diplomat Alexis de Tocqueville's (1805-59) seminal treatise for his production of “Democracy in America,” which takes the audience back to the New World to explore what the director calls “the decline of tragedy.” The Greek Festival performance takes place at the Onassis Cultural Center, starting at 9 p.m. on both nights. Tickets cost 25-40 euros.
