One of the dramatic ekphrasis forms is the ekphrasis of stage design. It describes what is usually made visible, at least partially, to the public, drawing its attention to important elements of scenography that played a significant role in the performance. Therefore it was necessary to make the spectators aware of those elements. They were used by all three tragedians: Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides. The article focuses on selected ekphrases of scenography taken from three Euripidean tragedies: Iphigenia in Tauris, Ion, Alcestis, and on their role in the structure of drama.
