In 2004 Thanos started working on translations of Ancient Greek tragedies to Modern Greek due to the need of having musically and rhythmically suitable libretti for his performances. First was “The Persians”, then “The Oresteia” and “The Suppliants” of Aeschylus and “Philoctetes”, “Women of Trachis”, “Ajax”, and “Electra” of Sophocles. He also translated “The Persians” and “The Oresteia” into English.
   Despite spending a lot of time and afford on translating tragedies of Sophocles, Thanos has never staged them, explaining that he just could not stop the momentum and was going on with the flow of writing.
