The plot of Lorenzaccio is set in Florence and Venice around 1537. The Florentine nobleman Lorenzo de Medici, a highly educated youth who admires the heroes of Greek and Roman antiquity, dreams of the restoration of the Republic in Florence, abolished by his cousin Alessandro de Medici. Lorenzaccio is a French play written by Alfred de Musset in 1834 (1810-1857), when he was only 23 years old. Based on true historical events as described in Storia Fiorentina, a chronicle of the Renaissance written in the 16th century by Benedetto Varchi.

The play was performed for the first time in Greece in 1965 at the National Theatre, directed by Jean Tasso, starring Dimitris Horn in the role of Lorenzo. The current production is dedicated to his memory.

This production is performed for the first time in Cyprus, in translation, adaptation and direction of Yannis Iordanidis.
