How would you feel about a 3x3 soccer match, where the football players are opera singers and dancers? And where two rival choirs, in the place of the fans, sing challenging
polyphonic songs instead of chants? And what happens when the announcer of the match
goes beyond mere commentary and starts making political comments over global current
affairs? Set pieces, penalty kicks, yellow cards, protests, goals, missed opportunities, offside, extra time. These are the components of a new impressively original opera, composed by Eleftherios Veniadis, with an unexpected libretto by the Austrian author Gerhild Steinbuch, directed by Sofia Simitzis. The performers are accompanied on stage by the Ventus Ensemble and a mixed choir from Chios, which will also include child refugees.
