This is the third season in a row that the Opera encounters Fashion. Il sogno (i.e. The Dream) is the title of this season's production, based on a concept of the journalist Isma Toulatos, who also has the overall supervision of this project. The production is directed by the multitalented Konstantinos Rigos. This year's guest is the great lady of Greek fashion, Loukia. Dimitris Giakas is once more the music supervisor. The performers' transformation is supervised by the famous make-up artist Achilleas Charitos.
The project Opera and Fashion aspires to combine Opera with Haute couture in a balanced and creative manner in order to underline the contemporary nature and great potential of these two worlds to converge. The performance attempts to demonstrate further the complete, contemporary and classic character of opera and the numerous, perhaps still unknown, possibilities of approaching other domains with the aim to open up to new fields and attract a new audience without, compromising its level of aesthetics.
Performed by Vassiliki Karayanni (soprano), Myrsini Margariti (soprano), Maria Kokka (soprano), Artemis Bogri (soprano), Nikos Stefanou (tenor), Tassos Apostolou (bass).
