Greek National Opera Alternative Stage
Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center
Starts at: 20.30 |
Sitting somewhere between theology and comedy, this performance where stand-up and early music co-exist on an equal footing, attempts to use utterly unexpected tools to grapple with two important theological concepts. The evening explores ‘Fools for Christ’ who would go beyond the bounds of reason and what was socially acceptable to come into more direct contact with the divine. Stand-up comedian and librettist Dimitris Dimopoulos meets early music ensemble Ex Silentio on stage, conducted by Dimitris Kountouras.
Pilot season ticket prices: € 12, 15 / Student, reduced: € 8
