The National Theatre of Northern Greece presents the work by Leon A. Nar I have never forgotten you, directed by Mihalis Sionas, at ‘Aimilios Riadis’ Hall of Thessaloniki Concert Hall, in the context of the thematic unit “War – Refugee Waves – Migration.”
This is a musical performance about a love, which, after numerous adventures and albeit not consummated, demands justice.
This is a play about the story of a famous singer; she sings on stage 13 Sephardic and rebetika songs, some of which are widely known in their Greek versions (Mikros Arravoniastika [I got engaged as a young lad], Pou na vro gynaika na sou moiazei [Where can I find a woman like you], Misirlou [Girl from Egypt], etc.).
This is a work that reminds us that most of us have at some point been migrants. It honours the history of the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki and reminds us that there was a time when Greek Orthodox Christians, Jews and Ottoman Muslims used to live in peace, like brothers.
