The book was printed by AGRA Publications. For almost three decades, Delphi has been a point of reference for ancient drama and the fourteen international meetings of ancient drama organised by the European Cultural Centre of Delphi have combined with unique success the scientific research and study of ancient drama with theatrical practice and education. The book documents those meetings. It includes original articles by important directors, theatre critics and university professors who took part in the Ancient Drama meetings as well as rich archival and photographic material. It also includes in a special section a complete and detailed record of all events per year.

The publication was made possible with the support of the Organisation for Cultural Development of Central Greece of the Region of Central Greece

The English volume of the book will be ready soon.
