Olympic Flame Presented in NY, First Greek Opera at Lincoln Center. The opera’s composer Panagiotis Karousos was inspired by Sophocles’ “Women of Trachis” or “Trachiniae,” the story of Heracles’ death and apotheosis. Deianira was tricked into poisoning Heracles, leading to an excruciating death. In her grief stabs and kills herself. It was a wonderful event. The singers were stupendous. They sang the Greek well and were a good team. The composition was original and fit the story well. It was innovative and charming, very dynamic and very exciting. (The National Herald, April 2014)
