Dimitris Maramis' Erotokritos, after its staging last May at the GNO Alternative Stage, will be presented for just one performance at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, on September 15th, 2017.

This season's great success, with ten sold-out performances, was the first musical commissioned by the GNO Alternative Stage. The musical -on a libretto by the composer- combines elements of jazz, blues and traditional Cretan music, while being based on the poetic work written in rhymed verse by Vitsentzos Kornaros and retaining the original dialect as well as form of the Renaissance work. Nonetheless, despite the use of Kornaros' special 15-syllable lines, which keep the original historical context of the work in mind, Marmaris' Erotokritos does not take place in that time but focuses more on the timeless elements of Erotokritos and Aretousa's love story; on their unhealthy passion and the adventures of these two young as they journey on the path to a happy end and to marriage.

Konstantinos Rigos, an accomplished creator and well-known figure in his field, is director and choreographer of the work. He describes it as, «a modern version of the work that takes place out of space and time, against a minimalist backdrop, with emphasis on the heroes' acting and movement».

Theodoros Voutsikakis, Marina Satti and Gautier Velissaris, young singers who have made a strong name for themselves on the Entechno music scene, star in the work, alongside acclaimed opera singers Ioanna Forti and Kostis Mavrogenis. With the participation of a music and a vocal ensemble.
