GNO Box Office &


Tickets for all Greek National Opera productions to be presented inside the Stavros Niarchos Hall and on the GNO Alternative Stage at the SNFCC from January through March 2024 go on sale Wednesday, 1 November 2023 at 9.00. This programme is made possible by a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) to enhance the GNO’s artistic outreach.

January and February will see an opera double bill featuring Pietro Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana and Ruggero Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci presented on the Stavros Niarchos Hall stage, conducted by Antonello Allemandi and directed by Nikos Karathanos. In January, the Alternative Stage –in co-production with Catapult Opera– will be presenting the Greek premiere of the Nadia Boulanger and Raoul Pugno opera La ville morte conducted by Neal Goren and directed by Robin Guarino.

Coming to the Stavros Niarchos Hall in February is a new Greek National Opera Ballet production of Rodion Shchedrin and Georges Bizet’s Carmen, choreographed by Johan Inger and conducted by Ektoras Tartanis. In February and March, the Alternative Stage will be hosting Salò, or The 120 Days of Sodom, a subversive work of music theatre based on the iconic Pier Paolo Pasolini film of the same title, with music by Jeph Vanger and featuring an expansive cast of acclaimed actors.

In March, the Stavros Niarchos Hall will be presenting the Greek National Opera’s first staging of Richard Wagner’s Die Walküre, conducted by Philippe Auguin and directed by John Fulljames – an international GNO co-production with the Royal Danish Opera. Meanwhile, the Alternative Stage will be reviving the hugely successful musical The Last Five Years, with book, music, and lyrics by the American composer and three-time Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown, in a production conducted by Michalis Papapetrou and directed (as well as translated into Greek) by Dimitris Dimopoulos.
