Vec Makropoulos

300 years old she is, or so she claims to be; Emilia Marty, the main protagonist of The Makropoulos Affair, an opera diva who's admired, desired, adored and praised by all. Yet, or perhaps because of this, she knows exactly how to manipulate this "man's world" and how to keep it at bay. Could she be hiding a secret behind her many appearances? What is this mysterious "document" everyone is looking for and that purportedly contains a formula for eternal life? What is this frenetic struggle with natural decay and the fear of growing old? A futile struggle which eventually Emilia Marty, too, will have to give up.
