The songs of sin / Common life / Children at Colonus

Manos Hadjidakis
  • 09, 10, 13, 14 Feb 2019

Starts at: 20.30 |  

Three emblematic, yet largely unknown, song cycles by Manos Hadjidakis, Common life, Children at Colonus and The songs of sin, come to light at the Alternative Stage of the Greek National Opera, as part of the GNO Manos Hadjidakis Cycle.


Common life
A work based on a poetic idea of mine, in which by using poems of Giorgos Chronas, a special ambiance of a different common life is formed, poetically set, with descriptions of a fancy cinema. Four songs have been written, but the whole work remains unfinished. 
Manos Hadjidakis

Children at Colonus
Τhe Children at Colonus are so much less than children, but without ever managing to become men. Children at Colonus compose Greek images of love, wretchedness, and hopelessness.
Manos Hadjidakis, 4-5 March 1978

The songs of sin
[...] a colorful mural including poems of Dinos Christianopoulos and one of Giorgos Chronas, Byzantine hymns, folk rhythms and a military band that obstinately plays Wagner's «The Siegfried Idyll». I dedicate this work to those who can still be eroded by Music and Singing.
Manos Hadjidakis, 4 January 1993
