Quotes :

"Epidaurus crowed for Kimoulis ! Oedipus Tyrannus
with George Kimoulis holds the record of the
performance with the largest number of spectators
in the history of the Epidaurus Drama Festival."
APOGEYMATINI


"What Epidaurus has experienced in the last two days
is something that has not been seen for many years."
ADESMEYTOS TYPOS


"...and now about George Kimoulis. It is hard to forget
this amazing performance. The character of Oedipus
beyond any imagination, unbelievably divine, shining
and dark. George Kimoulis is a destinguished Greek actor
whom you mustn't miss, given the opportunity."
APOGEYMATINI


"A performance which makes history and devides ancient
drama to two parts: beyond and after George Kimoulis.
Oedipus for 2000. A MASTERPIECE !
ADESMEYTOS TYPOS
