The predominant sentiment marking the 20th edition of the Naxos Festival is that of a lightning, a flashing flare, the feeling prompted by the dizzying flow of time when time is used creatively, influentially and fruitfully.
Round-number anniversaries offer an opportunity for review and appraisal, deconstruction and regeneration. A fertile passage to the new normalcy. 2020 is one such moment for the Naxos Festival.
