Vasilis Asimakopoulos, an impressive Coryphaeus in Aeschylus’ Agamemnon



Vasilis Asimakopoulos in Aeschylus’ Agamemnon
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."
Vasilis Asimakopoulos has the prestige, the seriousness and the personality of a born tragedian made for this.



Having studied classical singing bass Vasilis Asimakopoulos is a suited performer for Greek tragedies, and operatic tragedies because there he belongs. His stage presence has the aristocratic physiognomy for the leading roles.


His voice is heavy with metallic bass opera timbre where gives greatness that other many good actors missing because they can not support their voice by the diaphragm.
As a Soloist (Leading singer) Mr. Asimakopoulos was unexcelled, and I don’t think theirs is another troupe in Greece that has or had ever better soloist than him.
If Mr. Asimakopoulos continues in the road of opera combination and tragedy he will be established in an area that few actors ever could.
The tragic role of Clytemnestra the great actor Fotini Filosofou literally riveted audiences with their stage presence and interpretation.
The exemplary direction 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.
