I Ciclopi di Euripide

Performed by the Liceo "Gorgia" di Lentini in the Greek theatre in Palazzo Acreide, Sicily, May 2005

I was excited by the thought of seeing pupils from a school named after the greatest ever citizen of Lentini (Leontinoi in Greek times). Perhaps that induced me to suspend my critical faculties and sit back and just enjoy the performance at the Teatro Greco, Akrai - although not as much as the actors obviously did. I'll let the pictures speak!

Nymphs! (Not just Satyrs in this Chorus)

Silenus with his Nymphs and Satyrs Polyphemus - three eyes.
The audience, who had plenty to laugh at


More about Cyclopes - and how many eyes they had!
