The independent and rebellious Stella, a woman who is indifferent to what society thinks of the way she lives her life, is a singer at a local open-air night club. Stella insists on defining herself, rather than being defined by others, on experiencing love without boundaries, and on not giving in to society’s demands on her. When she meets Miltos, it will prove fatal…
Written in 1954, the play vividly brings to life a world of careless abandon that uses rebetiko music as a way of escaping from the pressures of everyday life and a financial crisis at a time when society is trying to shape its identity and emerge from the ruins of the Civil War.
In 2020, during the second lockdown, this National Theatre of Greece production was performed just once, to an online audience. This restaging of Stella with the red gloves in a joint production between two historic theatres - the NTG and the Art Theatre - enables audiences to finally see the play live, at the same time honouring the memory of Iakovos Kambanellis.
