The Greek National Opera returns to the stage

Sep 20, 2021
A rich program of concerts and new opera and ballet productions arrives onstage in Stavros Niarchos Hall and the Alternative Stage at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center through the Greek National Opera (GNO)’s October to December 2021 program.

Works by distinguished Greek composers Paolo Carrer, Nikos Skalkottas, and Mikis Theodorakis, as well as music by U.S. film composers, will spark conversation about the Greek Revolution of 1821 as a historic event with global impact.

In parallel with the GNO’s program to mark the 200th anniversary of the revolution, the final months of 2021 will feature Giorgos Koumendakis’s opera The Murderess, a Puccini recital with opera star Sonya Yoncheva, a new production of The Nutcracker by the GNO Ballet, and an opera for the whole family with music by George Dousis and libretto by Eugene Trivizas.

Sometimes the best seat in the house is on your couch, and the GNO’s online streaming channel, GNO TV, features productions the whole family can enjoy from the anniversary celebration and its sixth online festival.

Discover the GNO’s new artistic program, made possible by a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
