Greek National Opera - Manos Hadjidakis
Dance With My Own Shadow
Change of date for the production Dance With My Own Shadow at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus
We regret to announce that, due to positive Covid-19 cases in the GNO Ballet, the production Dance With My Own Shadow will be presented only for two performances at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, on 27 and 29 July 2021.
Ticket holders who had purchased tickets for the performance of the 25th of July, which is cancelled, shall be contacted by the GNO Box Office and given the option to either transfer their tickets to another date or cancel them and receive a refund.
Konstantinos Rigos choreographed four remarkable works by Manos Hadjidakis for the Greek National Opera Ballet. In Kyklos tou C.N.S (C.N.S Cycle), loss and suffering unfold against the backdrop of the rough sea; in Kapetan Michalis (Captain Michalis), the wet, nocturnal, Southern wind "falls upon women like a man and upon men like a woman"; in Katarameno Fidi (The Accursed Serpent), the iconic figure of Karagiozis epitomises the timelessness of folk art; in Το Chamogelo tis Tzokontas (Gioconda’s Smile), the glamour and hustle and bustle of New York City accentuates loneliness and despair.
Originally presented on November 9, 2019, at the Stavros Niarchos Hall of the Greek National Opera at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, the well-received performance will be repeated this year at the Athens Epidaurus Festival.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, all performance dates are subject to change
