Invitation for the production of Antigone at the Union Theatre, Melbourne University, 31 March 1951. Directed by Nicos Dimitracopoulos, the play was a reworking of Sophocles' 'Antigone' in modern Greek. A theatrical milestone, it was probably the first production of Greek tragedy in Greek in Victoria. Lili Sigalas had a minor part in the play, and was instrumental in organising the logistics of the production and was an active interpreter. Nicos Dimitracopoulos was director of the Athens National Theatre.
