Festival Description

The ancient theatre of Butrinti has been resurrected after 2500 years with the International Festival, which adopted the name: “Butrinti 2000”. “A Balkan dream”—is what the Festival seeks to fullfil through understanding, peace, cooperation, integration and human freedom of a Peninsula filled with commotions, legends and myths. Such historical, ethical and aesthetic synthesis became a reality through the International Festival of Theatre “Butrinti 2000”.

The “Butrintit 2000” International Festival of the Theatre shows up as a symbol of cultures’ confrontations and freedom of artistic creations. It is an open arena of the great masters of dramaturgy, who are brought to live through bearers of a contemporary reality. Taking into consideration primarily the antique, medieval and classical repertoire, the festival takes the shape of a returning back to the origins, toward the old-age temples: the theatre.
