The world premiere of a musical historical drama ''The call of Prometheus - 1821'' about the struggle for national rebirth during the period from 1821 to 1827, an era so important for the formation of new ideas, seen through the eyes of the Diaspora Greeks.

From the students of the time, the artists, the writers, the politicians and the diplomats –with references to Xanthos, one of the founders of Filiki Eteria, to Prince Ypsilantis, to the French painter Delacroix, the German writer Goethe…to Napoleon– we are transported to the beginning of the revolution and from there to the massacre of Chios, the siege of Missolonghi, the death of Lord Byron and, ultimately, the assassination of Kapodistrias in Nafplio. All of them very important events that have served as sources of inspiration of the Romantic movement and have largely defined European history in general.
