CATERINA: LAST QUEEN OF CYPRUS Takes the Throne at United Solo
"Caterina: Last Queen of Cyprus" is an original stage play by Anthie Zachariadou, directed by Andreas Araouzos in 2015 in Nicosia, Cyprus, on the beautiful terrace of the Centre of Visual Arts and Research (CVAR) overlooking the old town, including parts of the Turkish-occupied Nicosia.
Toronto-born Cypriot actress Christina Marouchou portrays Queen Caterina Cornaro (1454-1510). She is wearing a costume that is a historically precise replica from a Cornaro portrait and is an actual exhibit at the CVAR, taken from its exhibition stand only for this theatre piece, now travelling to New York especially for this presentation.
In the play, Caterina Cornaro of Venice recounts her story, from the age of 14 until her death, her life on the island of Cyprus and her bond with the people, as well as her tragic and oppressed status as a pawn of ruthless politics aiming at the island's domination.
