The Myth and the Dream

This summer, the Ostia Antica Festival makes its return as a whole host of theatrical, dance and musical spectacles play out in the magical setting of Ostia Antica’s Parco Archeologico.

This year’s edition of the festival is entitled ll Mito e il Sogno (The Myth and the Dream) and has the balance of tradition and innovation at its core. Following the theatrical tradition, this season’s shows will take place in the ancient, outdoor Teatro Romano for the month of July. Besides its incredible history and longevity, the ruin makes an ideal setting thanks to its great acoustics. The prestige of this theatre will be matched by a rich selection of Italian and international artistic culture that will take to the stage.
