Introduction 01:58
INTRO NARRATION The Middle Ages , dark times for those who wish to be. In the devil's house angels are having dinner. The line between good and evil has been erased. In the village of Mere , a young girl is happily in love with D'luvien , a local land owner. They are planning their wedding. So innocent she is that she believes all his promises. But she isn't the only one claiming his heart. Naida , the beautiful daughter of a merchant is determined to have him and with her charms , her expensive gifts she manages to lure him. Is it love or benefit that persuades him to cancel the wedding ? We will never know. When the young girl finds out she turns mad. Plunging her fingernails in her skin she scars her face to the bone. Soaked in tears and blood she is. How frightful she has become. Only to make sure no man would ever want her again. She runs away from everyone and hides in a cave where she spends the rest of her life. They call her Goditha...

Father Alvin , fair and just , comes forth to protect the villagers... Kristan : There he is , there he is moving like a shadow . Look out there can you see him hiding in the dark ? Edeline : Behind the walls , on the roofs , sitting on the church bell. The villagers : An evil black silhouette a creature of the past. Edeline : Feel his breath in your face reaching out to touch you. Kristan : Whispering in your ear words you 've never heard. Yrel & Irianna : Petrified in his sight a soul that's never resting. The villagers : There he is there he is ! Who can break his spell ? Father Alvin : Are you a demon , a devil sent from Hell ? Or are you a spirit condemned to walk the Earth ? What has possessed you or who has cursed your soul ? How can I release you ? Save you or kill you ? The villagers : Bring holy water , more silver crosses ! Sing Christian chants , now we need more forces ! Father Alvin : Help me Lord and guide my hand , give me strength. Am I worthy to fulfill and understand Your will ? Elvira : Father Alvin save us. Edeline : From our ignorance save us. Yrel : From our weakness save us. Irianna : We want deliverance. Kristan : There he is, there he is climbing through the window. Look out there can you see him crawling by the wall ? Edeline : Behind the doors , on the trees, sitting on the fountain. The villagers : An evil black silhouette a creature left undead. Kristan : Feel his touch in your hair coming out to take you. Edeline : Howling into the night, hunting like a beast. Yrel & Irianna : Petrified in his sight, a soul that's never resting. The villagers : There he is there he is , who can break his spell ? Father Alvin : Are you a creature who came to spread his rage ? Or are you an angel God sent to test our faith ? Is it revenge that you seek to get from us ? Or is it salvation ? Is it redemption ? The villagers : Out, I command you ! Back where you came from ! Mary, our Mother , we seek Your protection ! Father Alvin : Help me Lord and guide my hand , give me strength. Am I worthy to fulfill and understand Your will ? Kristan : There he is , there he is ! Father Alvin : I'll save you !

Save Me 02:47
2.SAVE ME Narrator : Goditha weeps , until she has no tears left to cry . No strength to move , no will to live... Daeva , the dark princess of Hell sees that the time is right, to appear to her as a friend. How easily she tricks her ... She offers to give her powers to revenge D' luvien and asks for a small price... Daeva : Goditha come to me you can have it all. Give me what you don't need in this wicked world, your soul... Don't be afraid to break your chains. Don't be afraid to be the one who laughs in the end... Goditha : Save me from madness , save me from myself... Daeva : Take my hand , by my side , all my power will be yours. Don't be afraid , I'm here for you. Turning your love into hatred is the greatest feeling of all ! Goditha : Save me from madness , save me from myself...
4.
3. FEEL MY POWER Narrator : And so it happens. Goditha is left lying on the ground helpless and blank. A heart empty of feelings. A body empty of a soul. The moon is full. What curse would rise from that grave ? She looks at the jar. It's full of wine ... Goditha : Night is falling, the horizon's red, a full moon's risen. I feel nothing, someone's in my head, a change is coming. How could you leave me? You were all I had. On my wedding dress, the roses withered as I cried. Just to get you back, I gave away my soul And I will not fear the devil's eyes anymore. Frozen darkness comes to shelter me, I am devoured. To revenge you both is what I only need, you'll feel my power. How could you leave me? My hatred grew so strong. And my evil thoughts took life and they consumed me whole. Deadly poisoned wine is my gift to you. And your soul will never rest until your true love dies... What love can break this spell? Rose thorns, eight knots, dead men's eyeballs. Broken chickens' backbones. Needles, sage, my tongue's on fire. Now you'll feel my power! How could you leave me? You were all I had. On my wedding dress, the roses withered as I cried. Just to get you back, I gave away my soul. And I will not fear the devil's eyes anymore... How could you leave me?

Feel the love we share , think of nothing else. ~ We are the lucky ones , why should we care ? We have each other now , life 's in our hands... ~ Naida : Look in my eyes , is it me you want? will you stay with me forever ? D'luvien : Why do you ask ? There's no need to doubt.

16. FORGIVE ME Narrator : D'luvien is devestated. He was sure of Naida's love. But all he took for granted is gone. Fate repaid him with the same price. Defeated , he walks into Goditha's cave . D'luvien : Here I stand at your door please forgive me Only now I understand what I've done to you Being poisoned by your hand was my justice But no-one could ever love me more than you Goditha : Here I lay at your feet please forgive me I gave up my life for you so long ago Hiding here all alone in my darkness I concealed my wounds I faded from this world I will forgive your every lie I will forgive your madness I will forgive your deadly crime Jealousy and love are partners ~ D'luvien : I've been searching for so long for salvation It was you who held the key deep inside your heart It's your love that never dies never changes What a fool I've been to let go of your hand Goditha : I've been dying every night here without you I will die once more to follow you back home There's no power more divine than forgiveness I'll drink the wine I'll be with you forever more You look so beautiful tonight... D 'luvien : You look just like an angel... ~ My love ~ I will forgive your every lie I will forgive your madness I will forgive your deadly crime Jealousy and love are partners ~ Narrator : Not a second thought. Not a second to lose. In each other's arms they lie on the ground. The curse is lifted...

17. WHEN A FULL MOON RISES Narrator : And that's how our story ends. The villagers smile when they see their silhouettes glowing in the dark dancing and laughing. Lovers till the end of time... But where do they come from? Is it from the light? Or is it from the darkness? Is it from the hatred and the sin? Or is it from the virtue and the kindness ? Kristan : There they are , there they are I can see their shadows Elvira : Look at them hand in hand walking in the dark Edeline : Behind the trees in the woods kissing by the fountain The villagers : Silhouettes covered by the colors of the night Kristan : Voices heard far away listen to them talking Yrel & Irianna : Whispering words of love like you've never heard Edeline : Not afraid in their sight, they belong together The villagers : There they are, there they are as if they never left Elvira : When a full moon rises and skies are so bright They always appear like candles in the night. Spirits from Heaven or demons from Hell Does it make a difference together they stand. ~ Look at them dancing ~ I hear them call ~ Singing and laughing ~ In every corner ~ They're dancing ~ Holding each other ~ Behind every wall ~ They're laughing ~ Forever united ~ Holding each other ~ Lovers till the end of time... ~ There they are there they are , can you see their shadows Look out there can you see them moving in the dark Behind the walls by the trees dancing by the fountain Silhouettes covered by the colours of the night Of the night.. ~ Elvira : Are you a demon of envy and of pride? Or are you an angel compassionate and kind? Is it revenge is it judgment in your heart? Or is it forgiveness? Or is it all? Irianna : Aren't we all? Heylan : Look at us all Edeline : Two different sides Olaf : Of the very same coin Hazel : What do we sell? Merek : Who's gonna buy? ~ What is it we are trying to find? ~ Daeva : Is it the light? Father Alvin : Is it the darkness? Elvira : Is it the hatred? Naida : Is it the kindness? Judge Alston : Is it the virtue? Yrel : Is it the sin? Kristan : Is it the greed ? ~ Or is it all together inside us all? ~

about

The rock opera Goditha is a musical that combines the power of metal music with the tender sounds of flutes, clarinets, violins, and other orchestral instruments. Songwriter-composer Elina Englezou and top composer-arranger-producer Bob Katsionis joined their imagination and created an extremely melodic work of music yet at the same time full of tension and energy, covered in an atmosphere that lures the listener into a whirlpool of contradictory emotions through songs that will remain unforgettable.

The musical is a medieval fairy-tale set in a little village where the story takes place.
Goditha, a young girl, betrayed and blinded by hatred surrenders herself to Daeva, the Princess of Darkness in order to get revenge. Τhus, she knits a web on which the other 15 characters constantly balance between good and evil.
