An enchanting fairy tale from the East, a hymn to humanity, the successful opera for children and young audiences A Cloud in Love by composer Sofia Kamayianni on a libretto by Eleni Zafiriou based on Nâzım Hikmet’s fairy tale of the same title returns to the GNO Alternative Stage to take audiences on a journey to far-away places and times through the power of music and poetry, in a production imbued with high symbolism and emotional wealth.

With eyes set on the dimension of collectivity, which marks the aesthetic and political standpoint of the original material, the operatic adaptation by composer Sofia Kamayianni and author Eleni Zafiriou stands out thanks to its bold dramaturgical choice to cast the award-winning Rosarte children’s and youth choir in the narrator’s role, as a character that gets involved in the events, comments, sympathises and takes a stand for fairness and brotherhood. The instrumental ensemble is conducted by Sofia Kamayianni; Eleni Efthymiou, one of the most remarkable directors of the younger generation, directs.
