Anita Rachvelishvili, a true opera star, has been carving out a hugely successful trajectory at the world’s leading opera houses, with raving reviews by the planet’s greatest Media. After her first breath-taking appearance in Greece in July 2018 in the GNO’s production of Carmen, the much sought-after Rachvelishvili – whom Riccardo Mutti described as “the best mezzo-soprano today on the planet” in his article in The New York Times titled “A young singer takes the opera world by storm”-, returns to Greece for her first solo recital that will take place at the Roman Agora, on 18 July. The programme includes popular arias from operas of Verdi, Cilea, Gounod, Saint-Saëns, Cherubini and Meyerbeer. A unique operatic experience.
The recital will be streamed live on www.nationalopera.gr, GNO’s YouTube channel and GNO’s Facebook page
All of Greece, One culture
Greek National Opera presents a series of events at archaeological sites all over Greece
This summer the Greek National Opera presents a series of events at archaeological sites all over Greece. In response to the initiative of the Ministry of Culture and Sports to make use of the archaeological sites across the country during this difficult summer, the Greek National Opera participates in the new institution All of Greece, One culture with a series of events highlighting its multifaceted artistic mark, curated by Artistic Director Giorgos Koumendakis.
From 18 July to 15 September, 20 different music, opera, operetta and dance programmes and tributes will visit 70 archaeological sites, in a total of 111 performances. Under the unprecedented conditions we are all facing, the events will mark the return to the relationship between the artists and the audience, and will be held in compliance with the instructions and guidelines of the competent authorities.
In these 20 programmes proposed by the GNO and organized in 6 cycles, emphasis is given on the Greek music creation, from traditional songs to sophisticated music, including selections from opera and classical music that remain staples in the GNO repertory, while dance is also present through the participation of members of the GNO Ballet.
