Article in Kathimerini on support for Greek National Opera program commemorating the 200th Anniversary of the Greek Revolution of 1821

Jan 14, 2019
In a recent article, Kathimerini highlights the importance of the year-long program of events by the Greek National Opera (GNO) to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution of 1821, which will be implemented with the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).

The program of events will be implemented as part of the four-year grant, totaling €20 million, by the SNF to the GNO, to support the artistic outreach of the Greek National Opera. The article also notes that the dynamic tribute, which includes new opera and ballet productions and partnerships with important ensembles and distinguished Greek and foreign artists, seeks to offer a different perspective on the Greek Revolution of 1821, interpreting it as an international rather than a local historical event.
