“Midia “ is one of the most important and totally Greek tradegies.The plot is about the consequences followed after Iason left his wife Medea for King’s Kreon daughter.  Midia, after her exile by the king plans her revenge against Iason.The play is full of dark intrigues,political turbulences and tradegies.

The production is inspired from 1920’s Greece after the population exchange between Greece and Turkey.The intervention of Greek and Turkish cultures resulted in the creation of “Rebetika”. “The ancient “Xoros”(ancient dancing group,often followed by religious performance) will sing Rebetika, a music which transports the sadness and drama in modern social scenery in transationalism and passion”,  Andrew Apergis said.
