Rafi – Nova Melancholia – Michalis Siganidis

How does one sing about one’s desires and fears? To what extent are humans natural and to what extent are they spiritual? How does living with animals affect us? How much does it liberate us?

One of the most dynamic Greek music theatre companies, Rafi, returns to the Athens & Epidaurus Festival, this time at the Little Theatre of Ancient Epidaurus, with Michelangelo Falvetti’s elegant Baroque oratorio Il diluvio universale (The Great Flood). Presented in Greece for the very first time, the oratorio of this provocative, Sicelian priest caused a sensation when it was originally performed: inspired by the Biblical story of the Great Flood, its protagonists are natural elements such as water, fire and air rather than Biblical figures.

The directorial duo of Nova Melancholia evoke the sense of a true tempest on stage. Audiences will be carried away by a seductive blend of period instruments, Arabic maqam and animal sounds, with virtuosos Michalis Siganidis and Harris Lambrakis improvising and sweeping us off our feet akin to medieval trobadours.
