This summer the celebrated orchestra Estoudiantina of Nea Ionia, Volos, under the artistic directorship of Andreas Katsigiannis, presents two exquisite music programmes. Each programme is a different musical journey. The first programme includes a tribute to Izmir and Piraeus, and the second is dedicated exclusively to the sea. Each programme features 8 orchestra soloists and 4 performers.
The second programme of the tour is structured in two cycles. The first cycle The voyage, in our seais dedicated to the sea that unites 23 different peoples. Common melodies and original adaptations meet on stage with Estoudiantina in a feast of sounds and rhythms. In the second cycle titled Love in foreign lands the journey begins from the East and the Balkans, passes through the Greek-speaking villages of Southern Italy and the Portuguese Fados and ends in yesterday and today’s Greece .
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.
