GREAT ACTOR FOTINI FILOSOFOU WAS A MAJESTIC CLYTEMNESTRA IN AESCHYLUS’ TRAGEDY AGAMEMNON



Fotini Filosofou as Clytemnestra

Athens September 11, 2013 . In the open theater of Municipality of Haidari presented to a full crowd theater Aeschylus’ tragedy Agamemnon by theatrical agency "AIXMI."
The tragic role of Clytemnestra was performed by great Greek tragedian actress Fotini Filosofou where literally riveted audiences with her stage presence and interpretation.
The role of Clytemnestra is one of the biggest classic roles of ancient tragedy that shows so obviously the transition of humanity from matriarchy to patriarchy. Primordial instincts come to surface through the works of Aeschylus, and passions that the subconscious has
had hidden deeply in the memory’s oblivion.
Returned to surface an awesome time when mankind subconsciously still has not overcome, that’s why the work of Aeschylus is still topical.
The whole mystery of human existence and the dark depths of the soul incarnate in the person of Clytemnestra that so dramatically Fotini Filosofou interpreted.
The movements of her hands through stunning garment were so attentive to highlight the greatness of the queen. Her voice vindictive, but heartbreaking for the previous sacrifice of Iphigenia.
Few tragedians could properly embody Clytemnestra’s part, like Katina Paxinou, Eleni Papadaki and others, but Fotini Filosofou gave her own mark, indelibly different, hers. She made the role her own and that is an achievement.
The exemplary direct
ion of Yannis Nikolaidis highlighted all aspects of the complex and dark character of Clytemnestra.
As Preacher John Nicolaides undoubtedly convinced, his thought moves and theatrical presence in a very unsettling and difficult role that literally opens and closes the tragedy. With him and under his direction all excellent actors interpreted beautifully their roles. As Agamemnon Zecharias Rochas was remarkable, as well as Cassandra Danae Kalachora gave her best.
Such productions from this theatrical organization under the direction of the indefatigable John Nicolaides will offer the maximum in Ancient Greek Tragedy.
