Mitsotakis Announces Full Restoration of the National Theatre of Rhodes

November 5, 2021

Rhodes, Greece – Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, in an official announcement from Rhodes on Friday, said that there will be a total restoration of the National Theatre of Rhodes.

Mitsotakis, who was accompanied by Culture Minister Lina Mendoni, announced that the restoration will get immediate funding from national coffers and the theatre equipment will be financed from the NSRF.

“It is a unique monument, and our ambition is that it will swiftly become a cultural centre. It must once again become a gem,” underlined Mitsotakis in his statements.

Both the regional governor Giorgos Hatzimarkos and the mayor of Rhodes Antonis Kabourakis thanked the prime minister, noting that it was not right for such a lovely island to have not properly taken advantage of such a beautiful building.

In the afternoon, Mitsotakis will visit the island of Halki and will take part in the event for the island’s integration in the “GR-ecoIsland” initiative for the transformation of the islands into ‘green’ and energy-independent areas.
