About

El Greco / Opera in three acts


The original opera El Greco by Giorgos Hatzinassios tells the story of Domenikos Theotokopoulos' journey from his birthplace, Crete, to Italy and then to Spain, where he remained until his death. Throughout his journey the great painter searches for the divine breath that is hidden in every being, behind the forms, and wishes to be reunited with the Creator. The work is in no way a historical documentary, but deals with the course of Greco's inner search like any artist. For this reason, the spatio-temporal becoming, far from sealed walls, favors Greco's meeting with another great Cretan, Nikos Kazantzakis, as well as with the mythical Icarus, who fervently seeks freedom and inner light. The melodiousness that characterizes the musical dialogues and arias captivates both the performers and the audience, while the libretto, which is written in Italian, is by Ilias Liamis.
