A Virtual Preview of the GNO’s Artistic Programming for the New Year

ATHENS — On Wednesday, January 27, the Greek National Opera (GNO) offered an online preview of its artistic programming for 2021.

This year will feature a major program marking the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution of 1821, organized through a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).

Distinguished artists will collaborate with GNO ensembles on new opera, ballet, musical theater productions and concerts, opening a discussion about the Greek Revolution as an international historical event. Alongside the anniversary program, new and ambitious productions that did not take place last year due to the pandemic will be presented to audiences in 2021. Recitals by top performers, revivals of older productions, and major co-productions in Stavros Niarchos Hall and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus will round out the GNO’s programming for the coming year.

The GNO will present its programming either, if public health measures for COVID-19 allow, to live audiences, or via streaming on GNO TV.
