Luigi Pirandello (1867 – 1936) was an Italian dramatist, novelist, poet, and short story writer whose greatest contributions were his plays. He was awarded the 1934 Nobel Prize in Literature for “his almost magical power to turn psychological analysis into good theater.” Pirandello’s works include novels, hundreds of short stories, and about 40 plays, some of which are written in Sicilian. Pirandello’s tragic farces are often seen as forerunners of the Theater of the Absurd.

Tonight we improvise (Italian title: Questa sera si recita a soggetto) is considered the third part of the trilogy that the author has dedicated to the “theatre within the theater”, after the works Six persons call for a writer (1921) and Each in his own way (1924). It premiered in 1930 in a German translation in Königsberg, and had its first Italian performance in Turin on April 14, 1930.

Manos Hatzidakis (1925 – 1994) was a Greek composer and theorist of Greek music, widely considered to be one of the greatest Greek composers. He was one of the main proponents of the Éntekhno form of music, along with Mikis Theodorakis. Hatzidakis is the founder of the Orchestra of Colors, an ensemble performing lesser-known works of Greek composers. He deeply influenced Greek culture through his writings and radio broadcasts.

Dimitris Mytaras (1934 – 2017) was a Greek artist who is considered one of the important painters of Greece during the 20th century.
