Commissioned by the Académie musicale de Villecroze in 2014 - Part of a project of 3 pieces : Myla et l’Arbre Bateau, Nous n'irons pas à l'opéra and Oprhée aux Animaux

No animals, creatures, humans, trees or rocks could resist sweet melodious strains of Orpheus’ song. Alexandros Markeas proposes his vision of the greatest poet and musician of Ancient Greece and takes the children to an imaginary place where music is everywhere. He gives them a chance to share a story and sing and dance together.
