Festive Lights Illuminated the SNFCC (Photos)

December 2, 2019

ATHENS – On Saturday, November 30, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) Christmas World came to life in a—literally—dazzling show!

Thousands of Christmas lights twinkled on trees along the Canal, lavishly decorated tall Christmas trees at the Agora were revealed in all their glory, and the light installations in the Stavros Niarchos Park playfully interacted with visitors. The Ice Rink once again came alive as the first skaters glided on fresh ice to the sounds of the Greek National Opera’s Children Choir. And of course, Christmas tunes accompanied the water shows of the Canal’s Dancing Fountains!

The celebration culminated with the traditional party at the Agora. This year we hit the ground dancing with soul queen Idra Kayne as her live Christmas-themed concert sets the festive tone.

SNFCC’s Christmas World came alive with the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
