Alkestida (Alcestis) marks the second collaboration between directress Livija Pandur and Silence. The staging, based on the oldest preserved play by Euripides, tells the story of Alcestis, the wife of Admetus, who sacrificed her own life in order to bring her husband back from the dead. The play features a remarkable performance by Katarina Stegnar in the title role.

The predominantly instrumental score—a marriage of mandolins and atmospheric synthesizers—includes Pjesma smrti, an original song with lyrics by Lada Kaštelan, and Kaj ti je deklica, an adaptation of a Slovene traditional song. The songs, performed live by the cast, feature pre-recorded vocals by Benko.
