The crew consists of renowned Greek artists such Set Designer Anna Georgiadou, Costume Designer Angelos Mentis, Director of Photography Thodoris Mihopoulos and Film Editor Yorgos Mavropsaridis.

The production is made possible thanks to a grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation aiming to enhance the Greek National Opera’s artistic outreach.

    It was an amazing event! Greek national opera, in my opinion, is the greatest venue to watch a cultural event like this! This year’s program is with no doubt one of my favorites! You can book your tickets here for ballet shows or opera shows or even contemporary dance!
