Aristophanes. Unique, Extraordinary, Magnificent. Always modern.
Be there, in Rethymno's Fortezza Venetian fortress, at July 27.
The Chremylos, drowned in debt, looking to the Oracle of Delphi for the right way to upbring his son: honest and poor or rich and dishonest? Pythia, as always foggy, urges him to get home the first perosn he encounters in the street after leaving the Oracle. This is a blind old man, God Wealth, punished by Zeus for not being able to see where he gives the wealth and who refuses to be cured, because he's afraid the wrath of Zeus. But Chremylos and his servant, Karionas, persuade him to give the wealth to those who deserve it and not the nefarious rhetoricians and cheaters. Poverty goddess intervenes and tries to convince that wealth will destroy the citizens, since the poor will stop working and become lazy. Of course the rich and the priests object this because they are going to lose their privileges.
