The Last Queen of Cyprus

The Centre of Visual Arts and Research (CVAR) is hosting another two performances of ‘Caterina: Last Queen of Cyprus’, a play about the life of Queen Caterina Cornaro by Alpha Square.

What: The Last Queen of Cyprus
When: Tuesday, 13 June – Wednesday, 14 June
Where: CVAR, 285 Ermou Street, Old Nicosia

‘Caterina: Last Queen of Cyprus’ is an original stage play in English by Anthie Zachariadou, directed by Andreas Araouzos and designed by George Yiannou.

Christina Marouchou portrays Queen Caterina, whose costume is a replica from a Cornaro portrait and is an actual exhibit at the CVAR.

In this play, Caterina Cornaro of Venice recounts her story, from 14 until her death, her life in Cyprus and her bond with the island, as well as her tragic and oppressed status as a pawn of ruthless politics aiming at the island’s domination.

Two shows will be given on the CVAR terrace starting at sundown on June 13 and 14 at 8pm. Entrance is €10 and reservations for seats or tables can be made by calling 70001140.
