The Daughter Of The Storm

Engaging in a new and fruitful dialogue with the hidden treasures of the Greek operetta, the Beggars’ Operas company has been responsible for a series of fresh approaches to the lyric theatre.

A million miles from a facile and ultimately artificial nostalgia for “the good old days”, the lost operetta repertoire – some 1000 works which were loved and performed in the genre’s heyday, only to disappear without trace after World War Two – are proving as relevant as they are vibrant, and a trenchant tool for pointed criticism of the modern Greek experience.
