Co-OPERAtive presents new production

Led by Greek National Opera

Winner of the FEDORA Education Prize 2019

Co-OPERAtive, the intercultural and collaborative opera hub for young people, winner of the FEDORA Education Prize 2019, presented “Untitled For Now: An Old Fable”, a music theatre performance with music by Andys Skordis and directed by Themelis Glynatsis, on 3 July 2022 at Greek National Opera.

Composer Andys Skordis and director Themelis Glynatsis joined their forces to create an original music theatre work for a group of young people of different nationalities and backgrounds, aimed at exploring the participants’ musical, physical and dramatic potential, while expanding their creativity, imagination and sense of team spirit.

A fairy tale about a dragon that destroys the world by throwing a star down to the earth and the adventures of a group of young people who lose their voice after the destruction inspired the creation of this music theatre performance, where sound, movement and animation shape a special setting in which a group of young people manage to collaborate, discover new aspects of music, dance and theatre, and work on something that is truly their own.

A few words from the team

Movement workshop leader Katerina Gevetzi said : “I was moved by the openness with which children became a team, their mutual support, their lust for playing and learning, but also their patience and persistence in the most difficult, technical parts of the workshop”.

The educators of Kinoniko Ekav noted about the participation of minor refugees in the programme: “… They had the opportunity to experience a new world. We saw talents unfolding and our children coming together and blossoming through music, dance, and in the company of their new friends. In the beginning perhaps they didn’t believe they could make it, but thanks to the members of the action team, they felt safe and let themselves go”.
