“In her show ‘Stories, Odes and Chants‘, Rania Chrysostomou weaved a mesmerizing collage of emotions so fine, so eloquent, and so elegant, much like a spider creates so naturally and effortlessly webs that, observed closely, reveal mastery and art. I am so glad that one of my poems found a “home” in this beautiful weft, and hope to have another chance to enjoy this work.”

Stories, Odes and Chants – slow release of the songs on YouTube
In June 2022 she organised a series of 3 concerts in Cyprus for the project Stories, Odes and Chants and the premier was held in Kasteliotissa Mediaeval Hall in Nicosia, Cyprus. A coming-of-age story about a woman trying to find a mystical spider weaving a magic mantle set in a fairytale-olden time in Cyprus is interlaced with 8 songs I set to music, 5 of which are poems by 4 living Cypriot composers, 2 are folk poems and 1 is an free arrangement on a traditional song.
