The exhibition “Theatre Costume” featured some of the most characteristic costumes preserved in the National Theatre wardrobe.
This exhibition was proposed by the late Artistic Director or the Greek National Theatre, Nikos Kourkoulos. Together with the monumental catalogue (100 Years of National Theatre, Latsis Group Editions), they represent a valuable contribution to the history of Greek theatre.
The exhibition was jointly organized by the National Theatre and the National Gallery of Greece as part of the Cultural Olympiad.
