The SNFCC Christmas World Comes to Life (Pics & Vid)

ATHENS — December is here, and along with it the joy and magic of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) Christmas World, brought to life through a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). The festivities kicked off with a celebration on December 1, brightening the night with thousands of festive lights.

Though we were not able to be there together in person this year, we could still enjoy the festivities through a live-broadcast celebration hosted by Greek musician Foivos Delivorias, who performed beloved songs in a virtual show inspired by a popular Athenian revue tradition. Foivos Delivorias and his electric quartet (Sotiris Douvas, Costis Christodoulou, Kostas Pantelis, Yoel Soto), the voice of Nefeli Fasouli, special guest appearances by comedians Thanasis Alevras and Byron Theodoropoulos, and Vassilikos as guest of honor delivered a spirited show, whose grand finale was the illumination of the SNFCC Christmas World.

Stay tuned for a rich program of events, concerts, theatrical performances, light installations, festive choreographies with the dancing fountains, creative workshops, and much more at the SNFCC throughout the month of December, culminating in an online New Year’s Eve celebration.
