Love, desire, jealousy, divinity and compassion. From the highest notes and the purest timbre to the deepest roar and the innermost longings; Sappho is edgy and surprising, sensuous and witty, archaic and modern.

The poems of Sappho of Lesbos (ca. 630 BCE) have attracted attention for generations with their sensibility and depiction of love between women. In Sappho’s texts, the erotic and the cultic merge in a tribute to nature, love and the divine.

After thousands of years, Sappho’s poems still seem contemporary with their universal themes, which in SAPPHO unfold in a celebration of the feminine and a tribute to queer communities.
