In the unique strain of music theatre, new media enter into a creative discourse with Alexandros Papadiamantis’ idiom.

After ten years of experimentation with their acting and with acquiring a shared code for on-stage communication, the OPERA theatre company is staging Alexandros Papadiamantis’ novel The Merchants of Nations to mark the centenary of the author’s death. Both the actors and the musicians playing live on stage serve the narrative, while simultaneously expanding the limits of the theatre by exploiting the potential of technology to the full. In the unique strain of music theatre to which this gives rise, new media enter into a creative discourse with Papadiamantis’ idiom, with the original music creating a rousing on-stage ambience.
