The GNO Learning & Participation Department returns and launches the new 2021/22 season with a renewed, rich programme for children, teenagers, young people, schools of primary and secondary education, adults, persons aged 65 and over, amateur and professional artists in Athens and other regions of Greece.
Educational programmes for schools, activities for the whole family, intercultural education for teenagers, intercultural amateur ensembles (Choir, Orchestra, Dance Group), diverse activities for persons aged 65 and over, programmes for new artists, and workshops in collaboration with the Olympia International Film Festival for Children and Young People compose the new, rich programme of the GNO Learning & Participation Department from October 2021 to July 2022.
Over the course of the next ten months, the GNO venues at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, from the Choir Hall to the Ballet Rehearsal Hall and the Alternative Stage, will turn for one more season into a wide, flexible, experimental and viable space for artistic innovation and research, where a network of acclaimed artists/educators will reintroduce opera, ballet, and music theatre to the wider audience.
A new production of the Learning & Participation Department is coming soon to your screen through GNO TV, the online television platform of the Greek National Opera. Miniatures for Revolution features original videos inspired by the Greek War of Independence and created by five young composers in collaboration with five young choreographers. Moreover, two more new productions for the whole family will also be added to the GNO TV programme, as part of the 6th Greek National Opera Online Festival: The Bear’s Tales: “The squirrel that made a forest disappear” (premieres: 23 December 2021), an original music work about diversity in which stop animation and contemporary music create a magical forest of sounds and images, and The Baritone’s Shoes (premieres: 3 January 2022), a musical performance for children and grown-ups based on musician and writer Dimitris Baslam’s book of the same title. The productions will be available to stream for free at nationalopera.gr/GNOTV.
