“The story begins in Samothraki, a year before the birth of Alexander, where during the Kaviria mysteries his mother –Olympias– and the King of Macedonia, Philippos, meet for the very first time, and concludes in the death of Alexander the Great in Babylon after 34 years. But who was the real man that changed history and affected the culture million of people? How many things do we know about his life? The opera aims at bringing us closer to the magic, the dream and the human nature of Alexander through contemporary sound and music.” Constantine Athirides
