Opera is no longer what it used to be. It is not just for a limited audience; it is not just for those who know about it. It evolves. It is experimented with. And it takes steps towards us…
Director Stathis Livathinos approached the tragic story of CARMEN based on this idea. This time, the opera was liberated from the libretto used in Bizet’s famous opera only to move closer to the alternative art scene of Metaxourgeio. As a result: the courtyard of a neoclassical building hosts a very “jazz” CARMEN played by Maria Nafpliotou.
