Greek National Opera

Program support

The program, titled: “A Journey to the SNFCC”, in collaboration with the National Library of Greece (NLG) and the Greek National Opera (GNO), aims to introduce the public to the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center project. 

The pilot program pertains to the organization of three-day events that will take place between November 2013 and March 2014 at five municipal libraries across Athens (Municipal Library of Athens, Municipal Library of Ilioupoli, Municipal Library of Keratsini/ Drapetsona, Municipal Library of Halandri, and Municipal Library of Haidari), in collaboration with the NLG and the GNO. During the first day of the events, the GNO production of Don Giovanni is performed. Τhe second day of the events includes a debate contest that will be organized by a student Debate Club, as well as the screening of films, which are the outcome of a cinema workshop that has already taken place at all the above-mentioned libraries. During the final day, selected actors and musicians are reading extracts from and discussing their favorite books at the library premises. In addition, various activities and brief programs are implemented by WWF, in collaboration with the relevant Municipalities and other NGOs, which will be similar in nature to the ones that will be taking place at the future Stavros Niarchos Park.

The Greek National Opera’s mission is to present productions of opera, ballet, operetta, and opera for children, as well as educational programs for new and younger audiences.
