Picture the scene… It’s summer, it’s festival time, and two battling rival groups will attempt to cover the entirety of Greek mythology in an evening. In the past ‘BYTE’ have performed sell out shows at the Roman Theatre including Aristophanes’ ‘The Birds' and their steam punk twist on ‘Around the world in 80 days”
“The show was fantastic for the whole family. We loved it!” Audience review.
This time the large ensemble performance company, known for their award winning chorus work, bring us famous myths such as Pandora’s Box, Jason and the Argonauts and Hercules. This theatrical extravaganza which also includes live music and movement, will culminate in a musical imagining of the Iliad complete with a full scale battle!
Audiences are always surprised and amazed how ‘Byte’ bring epic tales to life on stage and this show promises to be an unforgettable feast for the eyes, ears and the soul.
“I am still giggling a year on when I think back to watching the show at the Byte amphitheatre” Audience member.
Olympiaganza is wild, silly and a complete blast for audiences of all ages.
