Director's Note

“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.

Synopsis

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.
