‘Emperor Michael’ by Angelos Terzakis was staged by the National Theatre of Greece in 1978.
This is an interesting study for the play depicting the roots of his inspiration lying in the rich tradition of Byzantine art.
At the same time it shows how the artist fluently coupled art with stage design.
