This opera, subtitled “Ecological opera Rated R”, is the first musical theater work based on the theme of the rivers and streams of Attica. Here, the three imprisoned rivers (Ilissos, Iridanos, Kifissos* “the writing is kept according to the composer’s wish”) and the nymph Callirhoe star in personal and love adventures. They are tormented by the “baron of the night” Mr. Takis, but with the guidance of the goddess Athena and an oracle of the seer Teiresias, they are led to their emergence and liberation, through an optimistic triumphant finale.

Recommended for audiences over the age of 15
