Erotokritos by Vitsentzos Kornaros


Erotokritos is a romance composed by Vitsentzos Kornaros in early 17th century Crete. It consists of 10,012 fifteen-syllable rhymed verses written in the Cretan dialect and it is considered one of the most important works of Cretan litterature. Its central theme is love between Erotokritos and Aretousa. It remains a popular work to this day, largely due to the music that accompanies it when it is publicly recited.
Hainides and the “Ki omos Kinite” team of dance and acrobatics interpret Erotokritos tonight in a slightly different form. How? You will find out when you see the musical performance at Santorini Arts Factory in Vlychada at 21.30.
