After the success of the concert series "Alice in Wonderland" in the last quarter of 2015, the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra Foundation continues this musical tale with the organic ensemble "Allegro Vivace", with concerts in all its provinces!

For 150 years, Alice's adventures, translated into at least 97 languages, have traveled around the world, knowing many television and film adaptations, while inspiring opera and ballet.

The story was written in the middle of the 19th century. by the Englishman Lewis Carol and describes with fine imagination and childish spontaneity the adventures of a girl, Alice, who after falling into a burrow, wanders in an imaginary world where she lives many interesting and very strange stories!

This masterpiece is a fascinating play on fantasy, a dream tale. Alice defies the laws of gravity, finds drinks that make her short and eats cakes that elevate her! She meets hares that talk like humans, smiling cats, playing cards that parade in front of her with the King and Queen, she meets a rude hat, a griffin, a crying turtle and a caterpillar that gives advice.

The ensemble "Allegro Vivace", as its name implies, will offer the public the joy (Allegro) of Music, in an intense and lively way (Vivace), through a total of 6 Sunday concerts, under the direction of conductor Giannis Hatziloizou.
