Abstract

"The Greek National Opera presents two remarkable works of the Ionian and National Schools of Music in a single bill of opera and dance with the participation of the Orchestra, Chorus, Ballet and Soloists of the GNO, as part of the tribute to the bicentennial of the Greek War of Independence. In the first part, Nikos Skalkottas’ Greek Dances, a fusion of modernistic and Greek folk music elements, is choreographed anew by Patricia Apergi and Linda Kapetanea and Jozef Fruček, and is presented under the baton of Yorgos Ziavras. The second part features Paolo Carrer’s opera Despo, which was based on Antonios Manousos’ one-act play The Heroic Death of Despo and Her Daughters-in-Law at Dimoulas’ Tower and regarded as the “first Hellenic tragic melodrama”, conducted by Yorgos Ziavras and directed by Yorgos Nanouris."
