The scenario of this play is based on the Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur. Dionysus falls in love with Ariadne. He offers her immortality and makes her his wife. Three days after their marriage and while Dionysus is absent in Naxos, Ariadne, without the fear of death, is hurrying to meet her brother; the monstrous Minotaur. There, in the front of the gate of the Labyrinth, Ariadne will meet with Theseus who has just arrived in Crete from Athens, in order to fight and kill the beast. There will be love at first sight… The writer, Matina Papageorgiou is setting up a complicated structure of relations and conflicts, around the central erotic triangle; and all together a colourful and enchanting fairy tale.
