Summary/Abstract: The Christian liturgy may be considered as a drama in dialogue, directed by a priest, sometimes helped by a deacon and always by the chorus of the believers, reminding the chorus of the ancient theatre. How far do these similarities go? The limits and the convergences, the resemblances and the contrasts may help to highlight the values of the mystery, both for the divine ceremony and for the scenic performances.
