On the second night, Rialto will host three performances starting with Letters to Tennessee directed by Anthoulis Dimosthenous and played by Yola Kleitos. Following, will be Carmen directed by Natalia Panayiotou and based on Prosper Merrie’s homonymous novel. March 2 will close with That Time, directed and performed by Marina Makri, inspired by Samuel Brecht.
