Lyrical theatre is an infinite resource of communication between the audience and the artists. Based on its musical and vocal primal instruments it has been reaching out to public of all social classes throughout history. This universal artistic language is expressed on stage through various representations expanding in different genres and subcategories, defined by their historic periods and ages. This communication is realized through the human voice; this wonderful and mysterious weapon of artistic creation cannot be tuned to the standards of physical playable instruments, but can surely be the vessel that brings the audience an emotional and powerful experience. This form of artistic performance is full of spiritual and timeless emotion. No doubt a great contribution to cultural life to many civilizations of the world, its message is direct and always straightforward aimed at audiences all around the globe.
