Press Conference for the Announcement of a New SNF Grant to the Greek National Opera

January 2, 2019

ATHENS – On Thursday, January 3rd 2019, Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) together with the Greek National Opera (GNO) will be holding a Press Conference to announce a new significant grant to support GNO.

The event will be streamed live via SNF’s website at www.SNF.org/live, and the SNF’s Facebook page @SNFoundation.

The grant initiative follows on the heels of a series of SNF grants for the support of GNO. More specifically, even before the completion of the construction of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC), SNF’s largest single grant, the SNF exclusively supported GNO’s free opera productions, which were held at unexpected locations, as part of the “Opera in a suitcase” program. Following SNFCC’s official delivery to the Greek State, the SNF continued its support to GNO through a grant, totaling €5 million, to ensure its smooth relocation to its new premises at the SNFCC. In addition, the SNF supports the Alternative Stage and the implementation of its programming, with a founding grant, as well as many of GNO’s educational and social activities.

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.
