The presentation of the opera moved and was applauded by students and teachers.
Bass Vasilis Asimakopoulos' as Prometheus was incomparable vocally and scenically. Impressive soprano Irene Konsta did a magical Io, touching with her high interpretation. Tenor Theodoros Birakos as Ocean was strict by giving all the elements of the Titan who sympathized with Prometheus, while as Hermes he stirred up the students with the melodious aria that conveyed the audience. Soprano Mariza Kioseoglou gave a brutal violence as required by the role and a goddess Athena with vocal alternations. The fantastic protagonists were accompanied by the pianist Pandelis Legakis.
