DRAMA & THEATRE

Melpomene, the ancient muse of tragedy, will bring out the most profound and meaningful emotions, inspiring you with the stories of others. And she is the Songstress: 'melpo: to celebrate with song and dance —  the epithet also awarded to Dionysus, the god of theatre and patron of dramatic festivals. 

TARAS' TIPS:

“Follow in the footsteps of the heroes of tragedy, allowing yourself to be led to an intense, dramatic experience.”

From MacBeth's Scotland, where you'll enhance your knowledge and understanding of Shakespeare's infamous tragedy, to the reputed location in Rome where Caesar was warned about the Ides of March, enjoy all the drama as it unfolds before you.
