  • Σύνοψη

    Following the great success of Thodoris Ampazis’ opera Prince Ivan and the Firebird, the children’s opera of Lena Platonos, whose songs of Lilipoupoli have raised generations of children, sets the bar of expectations even higher.

    Lena Platonos wrote The emperor’s nightingale, a “musical fairy tale with operatic elements”, as she has described it, in 1989, based on Hans Kristian Andersen’s fairy tale of the same name, to respond to the wish of counter-tenor Aris Christofellis. The libretto was written by the poet-biologist Giorgos Voloudakis. The work’s recording featured top performers, such as Aris Christofellis, Savina Yannatou, Spyros Sakkas, Fragiskos Voutsinas etc. Platonos characterized the work’s music as neo-impressionistic.

    Andersen’s fairy tale morphs into a parable about the relationship between art and technology, which nowadays is more topical than ever. The work’s modern-day message, the co-existence of analog and electronic music, the irresistible melodic lines of Platonos and the skilled vocal writing make The emperor’s nightingale an ideal opportunity to acquaint children with the magical world of the lyric art.

    In Athens, during the Belle Époque, Nikos and Verginia, a newlywed couple, have set up their home at the working-class district of Gargaretta. He works as a carpenter. She, many years older than him, has a failing health, as a result of a miscarriage in her first pregnancy. When at some point she collapses, young Liolia, a lovely, beautiful, sixteen-year-old girl is brought home to help. Under the eye of helpless Virginia, her hale husband and the inexperienced girl are romantically attracted to each other. During the wild festivities of the Athenian Carnival, the two of them come closer. Verginia suffers in silence, but out of love, she makes it easier for them to be together, by sending them to the spring fields to bring flowers. The healthy youths succumb to the irresistible calling of their desire and romantically unite in nature. The malicious neighbors gossip incessantly and the sick woman, sensing what is going on, surrenders to the embrace of death. One evening, as she wakes up, she sees the couple cuddled in the moonlight, becomes upset and passes away. A few months after the funeral, Nikos marries the pregnant Liolia but the past is haunting their relationship. The unfortunate young woman gives birth to a seven-months premature baby girl, pale like a wax doll, who looks like the deceased Verginia. Despite her supplications at the dead woman’s tomb, the newborn dies. While hopes for a new life arise, Nikos is stabbed to death by a friend who had long coveted Liolia.

    In the dusty poor districts of a deceptively idyllic Athens, the lyrical and emotionally invasive words of Christomanos unfold in a pessimistic mood the usual love story of some humble people until its tragic ending. Inspired by his writing, the composer remolds the Wax Doll into a music full of symbols, lyricism and a passionate lust for life, while revealing to us the pace at which Nature alternates death with resurrection.

    “The moment when a Maestro and an orchestra are preparing for a big concert, restless Viola runs away to the unknown and free world of jazz. She falls in love, revolts and is tested to discover that Music is one and the same and that it is us who build the walls between us. Viola’s strange adventure, sometimes funny sometimes hard, in a libretto by Marivita Grammatikaki and with music by Thodoris Economou, walks the line between different musical genres and styles and takes both children and adults on a trip toward the beauty that is hidden inside us, when we overcome our stereotypes and fears” Io Voulgaraki.

  • Σύνοψη

    In a music city, a maestro and an orchestra are preparing for a big concert. The music city, however, is divided in two parts. One the one hand, there is the classical part, with its rigid rules, and on the other hand, there is the jazz part with its freedom of improvisation. Could these ends ever find common ground and melodies, and be united? What role will the maestro play? The instruments of the orchestra morph into human characters and form a contemporary society.
