The epic thread of the show involves the existence of 20 characters, 10 of which are performed by representatives of the Roma community from Constanța county selected following a casting call organized in June 2023 and trained in an introductory course in dramatic art and musical art held in June and July 2023. The musical theater show promotes reference elements of Roma culture: traditions, customs, crafts, traditional clothing, language. The script was written based on the documentation provided by a historian and an ethnographer and is colored with musical fragments and traditional dances as well as lines and dialogues carried out in the language of the Roma community.
