27 March 2014

Magda Mavrogianni, idea - text – narrative
Maira Milolidaki, soprano
Nikos Spanatis, counter-tenor

Jane Morris and Maria Stillman Spartali were the muses who inspired the Pre-Raphaelite painters. The Pre-Raphailite painters, believed that beauty is a form of intelligent and perhaps more superior because it is not necessary to be explained. Jane Morris will be performed by the actress Magda Mavrogianni and the Greek Maria Stillman Spartali will be performed by the soprano Maira Milolidaki. The gentle voice of countertenor's Nikos Spanatis will convey to us the spirit and aesthetics of the Pre-Raphailite painters and the pianistic virtuosity of Titos Gouvelis will merge theater and music.
