A Perspective on How SNF Is Helping the GNO Shine in French Newspaper Les Echos

ATHENS — Don’t let its name fool you; the Greek National Opera (GNO) is not just for Greeks. The GNO is attracting the interest of audiences and journalists around the world, and a recent piece in French newspaper Les Echos took an extended look at the GNO’s work and the support from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) that helps enable it to “shine.”

In the article, GNO Artistic Director George Koumentakis talks about the GNO’s rich output, which includes close to 300 events per season, and efforts to reach as many people as possible through affordable tickets. He also discusses the organization’s strong “DNA” and its ability to cope with crises like the current one while still advancing into the future.

SNF Program Officer Anna Maria Kosmoglou also comments on the vision behind the creation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC), which also hosts the GNO’s new, state-of-the-art facilities. Kosmoglou discusses SNF’s longstanding support for the GNO, the Foundation’s most recent grant to bolster the GNO’s artistic outreach, and SNF’s support for major educational and cultural organizations in France.
