Britannicus | Athens | December 13


The French Institute of Athens is organizing a screening of the notable 2018 performance of “Britannicus” at the Comedie Francaise, directed by Stephane Braunschweig. The great French dramatist Jean Racine’s tale, first staged in 1669, focuses on Britannicus, the son of the Roman emperor Claudius and heir to the imperial throne, and Braunschweig’s interpretation focuses on the tight link between the psychological and political elements of human lives. The projection begins at 8 p.m. in the Theo Angelopoulos Auditorium and is subtitled in Greek. Tickets cost 10 euros.
