New York Euripides Summer Festival

The Hellenic Cultural Center Theater will proudly host this summer’s digital edition of the New York Euripides Summer Festival productions of Ion and Orestes on August 26 and 27 beginning 7 PM.

Orestes will begin at 7:00 PM and Ion at 8:30 PM on August 26. The following day, August 27, Ion will kick off at 7:00 PM and Orestes at 8:15 PM.

Both productions will be on the big screen at 27-09 Crescent Street in Queens or on the American Thymele Theatre YouTube channel starting August 29 and thereafter. Just like in antiquity, all productions are free-of-charge to the public. Due to the pivotal function of Apollo in both dramas, Ion and Orestes are presented together, as a double bill, for this summer’s remote New York Euripides Summer Festival, produced by the American Thymele Theatre.

The Hellenic Cultural Center (HCC), was established in 1985 in its current location in Astoria, New York through the efforts, dedication, and commitment of members of the Greek- American Community and the spiritual guidance and leadership of Archbishop Iakovos.

To date, the HCC actively continues its noble mission utilizing its theatre which provides comfortable seating for an audience of nearly 200 people, a professional stage, complete with high tech sound and lighting, private dressing rooms for the performers, whether actors, musicians, or dancers.
