One of the masterpieces of the Greek playwright Aristophanes relives in an original on the road comedy, which takes the audience on a surprising journey into the Underworld. On stage we witness the vicissitudes of the God Dionysus and his servant Xantia, on their way to Hades in search of a Poet to save the city from cultural decay. When they cross the threshold of the afterlife, the choir bursts onto the scene, interrupts the plot and takes on the responsibility of carrying on the story. Where is the Poetry that Dionysus is looking for today?
