Giuliano Peparini returns to the Greek Theater of Syracuseafter the great public and critical success recorded in 2023 with «Ulysses, the last Odyssey». «Horai-The Four Seasons» is the show that the world-famous director, choreographer and artistic director will stage on 5 and 6 July within the program of the 59th Season at the Greek Theater of Syracuse produced by the Inda Foundation.

The creation of Peparini, with music by Antonio Vivaldi and Domenico Scarlattiwill present a dialogue on universal love inspired by classical poetry, including notes, dance, poetry and theater and will tell the natural seasons of the couple, exciting the audience thanks to the immortal verses of the Greek and Latin poets chosen and translated by the Greek scholar Francesco Morosi.
This year too, the show will involve the students of the Academy of Art of Ancient Drama.

«Giuliano Peparini conquered the public of Syracuse last year with a wonderful creation that amazed and thrilled thousands of spectators, contributing decisively to the historical record of tickets sold recorded at the end of the 58th Season at the Greek Theater of Syracuse – he said the president of the Inda Foundation, the mayor of Syracuse Francesco Italia – . We are very happy to once again host the genius and creativity of an artist known throughout the world and I am sure that he will offer a memorable show again this year.”

The two special evenings with «Horai-The Four Seasons» are scheduled after the classical performances on stage at the Greek Theater from 10 May to 29 June: «Ajax» by Sophocles directed by Luca Micheletti in the translation by Walter Lapini, «Fedra (Hippolitus bearer of the crown)” by Euripides directed by Paul Curran in the translation by Nicola Crocetti, and the Latin comedy “Miles gloriosus” by Plautus directed by Leo Muscato in the translation by Caterina Mordeglia.
