Someone will remember us…
Poetry and music inspired by Sappho
A seaport, trading centre, resort for the nobility and stopover for all travelers, the island of Lesbos was highly prized on the route to the Greek colonies of Asia Minor. Lush, fragrant, covered with vines and myrtle groves, its scenery was matched only by the legendary beauty of its women. Among them was the poetess Sappho of Mytilene, as famous in her time as Homer.
A writer of lyrical, passionate verse, Sappho was also a dancer and musician, like all the courtesans around her, her sisters and lovers, to whom she passed on the arts of the muses. The power of her words, their visionary splendour, continue to inspire and astound us today, some 2,500 years after her death.
