Dance will mark its special stamp on this summer’s events with the participation of GNO Ballet dancers and celebrated Giorgos Kotsifakis in a series of dance solos which will be presented in interior spaces of Archaeological Museums. Engaging in a dialogue between movement and immobility, the dancers will tell new stories based on their own choreographies as well as on choreographies by Ioanna Portolou, Giannis Nikolaidis, Christos Papadopoulos and Konstantinos Rigos.
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.
