Konstantia Gourzi: flying carpet 2013 - Odyssey (Trailer)
THE OPERA FLYING CARPET 2013
Konstantia Gourzi invited three composers to engage with three themes of The Odyssey: migration – integration; victory – defeat - aspiration; victory - hubris – defeat - homecoming.
Flying Carpet’s concept also seeks to promote cultural understanding. It is important to Konstantia Gourzi that the composers all have a connection to The Odyssey, in that they bring together the principal cultures of the Eastern Mediterranean. These are:
*       Turkey/the Ottoman Empire, represented by Sinem Altan, who was born in Ankara (Turkey) in 1985 
*       Judaism, represented by Amos Elkana (b. 1967), who lives in Tel Aviv (Israel)
*       Greece, represented by Giorgos Koumendakis (b. 1959), who lives and works in Athens.
