After saying, “Arrivederci!” to our wonderful guests from the last week, I drove to Siracusa to meet my cousin and business partner Evelina and her close friends. This evening, we attended “Le Rane,” or “The Frogs,” a comedy by Aristophanes, written in 405 BCE. The ancient theater was full. Joyful theater goers, seemingly all Italian, laughed at Dionysus, the play’s main character, as he journeyed to the Underworld in an attempt to save the sad state of theater in Athens. What fun it was to hear another world-class production here, one of the theaters for which such a play was originally written!
