Aripidi’s performance as Callas, Mercouri and Medea touch the hearts of all people of every age all around the world.

Medea, Callas and Mercouri meet on a train in 1950. The journey begins in ancient  and ends in modern Greece. Medea’s ancient tragic figure comes across two of the greatest  greek female personalities of modern culture, Maria and Melina. What binds them together is passion.Passion for life and love, passion for creation and freedom. History, culture and art ,the force of greek soul and the fights for democracy come to life from an actress and a musician through a journey of creative memory, humour and intense emotions since Greece is the first and final destination.
