The performance is based on one of the major Greek tragedies of Euripides, written 2424 years ago. Tragedy develops the myth of Dionysus, the god of winemaking and the productive forces of nature. This young god comes to his homeland in Thebes to establish his cult, but it encounters resistance from King Penfey, who considers the new cult immoral.
