ALEXANDER ROCK OPERA THESSALONIKI


The rock opera “ALEXANDER” is a theatrical/musical production of a new play created by the Greek composer Constantine Athirides and the English lyricist Penny Turner. The duration of the performance is approximately two hours and fifteen minutes and is supported by a live orchestra of 14 musicians, 4 singers, actors and dancers. The story begins in the island of Samothrace, one year before the birth of Alexander, where during the Kaveiria Rituals in the Temple of the Great Gods, his mother, the priestess Olympias, and Philip, the king of Macedonia, meet for the first time. It ends with the death of Alexander in Babylon, thirty four years later. Through contemporary sound and music, the rock opera aims to acquaint us with the magic, the dream and the human side of Alexander. For the creators, it is a real challenge to stage a musical and theatrical “ALEXANDER” created in the actual area where he was born and reached manhood. The rock opera has already been recorded, bringing together more than 150 musicians, singers and actors who have offered their knowledge and talent for its completion. The recording of the rock opera released in the form of a double cd accompanied by a book, on November 1st 2012. The world premiere: Rock Opera “ALEXANDER” begun its journey on the 9th of November 2012 at the Stage Hall. Not forgetting the extremely difficult economic circumstances, all participants involved are optimistic about presenting a performance of a high artistic and recreational standard about Alexander the Great, a significant part of world history and of the Greek cultural heritage.
