The stage music written by Jani Christou for the Greek National Theater production of this work directed by Alexis Minotis was in effect the first time he really dipped his toes into the world of music theater, and features many of his special compositional practices, as well as new media such as cassette tapes. Although subsequently overshadowed by his later partnership with Karolos Koun in the famed production of The Persians, Prometheus Unbound is a complete work that tends toward opera. The performance features students of the National Theater School of Drama and of members of the ERT Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Anastasios Symeonidis.

*As part of the festival "Music Theater Days" (June 4 - July 11, 2017).

Music theater remains one of the most misunderstood and often overlooked artistic fields in Greece. Nevertheless, for decades this art form –and especially more light-hearted versions of it– was a firm fixture of Greece’s cultural scene, attracting the attention of many composers. This year’s theme at the “Music Theater Days” is Greek avant-garde musical theater from the 1960s to the 1980s. The aim is to showcase this long-forgotten part of the country’s cultural heritage, which comes from a field that is one of the Alternative Stage’s main areas of focus.
