A tragic story of Phaethon, an illegitimate son of Helios. An ambitious young man, Phaethon strives for higher things, but is insufficiently strong to endure the very elevation he craves. The supreme symbol of his ambitions, the ride in the chariot of Helios, becomes the means of his destruction.
The magnificent tragedy of Euripides "Phaethon" is reconstructed by the award-winning poet Vlanes.
