The Centre of Visual Arts and Research (CVAR) and Alpha Square, are celebrating World Museum Day by presenting a dramatic salute to the last Queen of Cyprus, Caterina Cornaro.
It is a theatrical monologue in English, whereby Caterina Cornaro of Venice recounts her story, from the age of 14 until her death, her life in Cyprus and her bond with the island, as well as her tragic and oppressed status as a pawn of ruthless politics aiming at the island’s domination.
Caterina is portrayed by Christina Marouchou, directed by Andreas Araouzos. The original text is by Anthie Zachariadou and the visual design by Giorgos Yiannou.
The show was warmly welcomed by audiences and a series of extra shows were added in the summer of 2015.
Due to popular demand, the show returns for limited performances in September 2015.
