Author: Giya Kancheli 
Director: Robert Sturua

A requiem for alt and chorus dedicated to late parents and friends directed by Robert Sturua.


Styx _ a mythic underworld river, a dwelling place for the deceased.       
Styx – a phantasy play strung in free verse by Robert Sturua and sung to those who would leave this world in difficult times for Georgia without the benefit of knowing of what their sacrifice truly would bring about.
This is the world played out in farce and inhabited by love, hatred, suffering and aspiration to power.  A flashbulb of musical phrases, people, events, smiles, tears and, nonetheless still hopeful about future.
