“EL GRECO” – meeting the Theatre

“El Greco” moved to the Theatre – wonderful renovated renaissance style building in Piraeus


For Dario Di Vietri (El Greco – tenor) already a second Home 🙂


We are so excited.. and maybe (just at the beginning) a bit lost.. but it is, I think, natural.. – such an impressive place will leave everybody dazzled …


… what to do? where to go? when? why? – he has the answers for all questions – Vasilis Anastasiou – the Stage Director 🙂

Direttore_TheatreAngelos Karaindros (Production Director) and George Hatzinasios (Composer) are examining all the details – stage, light, rhythm, musical phrase etc..

Stage_Director_HatzinasiosThe spirit of Art and creativity is everywhere – optimism and humor as well 🙂 – here with Carlo Torriani (Governor Molino)


Harris Andrianos (Manolis) –


Dario Di Vietri, Eugene Gunko (Grand Inquisitor), Carlo Torriani


and of course our passionate choreographer – Maria Thomopoulou 🙂

On the stage

Sometimes (not very often…) the stage Director is giving us a 3 minutes break – a fantastic opportunity for our great pianist, Benjamin Chatzikoumparoglou to play with his favorite toy…


My small work-place and.. important tools..


All of this is essential for the creation of an Opera, Theatre and drama..

“EL GRECO” – first (piano) rehearsal

We started!! TUTTI (…almost) !!!  🙂

Tutti_speachOpening with a great speech by the Stage Director – Vasilis Anastasiou – a man of vision, ideas and most of all knowledge and fantasy – so important for the Opera, which is a world of beauty, music, dance and also of great history.. Thank you Vasilis – you know how to bring magic to the audience.. !! 🙂


The atmosphere was quite relaxed – Maria Hatzinasios made everyone feel warmly welcome!

Silvia Dalla Benetta (Sofia) and Omar Kamara (Manolio) – both from Italy, know how to match work with a bit of sweet.. 🙂 


Great singers and of course: Maestro George Hatzinasios on the Piano! else could it be??


In the era of digital kingdom, where life happens in high speed velocity, we seem to have forgotten about the most essential element in the Art of Music: the Melody!

George Hatzinasios’ EL GRECO is here to remind everyone of how music can uplift our spirits, where the Melody is the key factor for the creation of a deep and meaningful communication between our hearts…

Silvia Dalla Benetta (Sofia) preparing for a beautiful duo with


Marita Paparizou (Sylvana)


Sotiris Triantis – wonderful baritone making small corrections in his partition – Maestro Hatzinasios has never enough of artistic character.


It is such a great feeling, to work on a piece of music which has never been performed… It is like sculpting… or painting… At first you can’t have a clear image of how it will be.. But then..


Johannes Brahms Symphony No 4 with The Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra (TPO)

I had a great pleasure to work with the musicians of Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra (TPO) about the Symphony No 4 (e-minor) of Johannes Brahms – his last symphony, one of the greatest music piece in the history of music. This young orchestra, with the first concert in year 2004 is no more “young” – the quality of musicians TPO after a few years of the regular work together is really fascinated even if You know, there are musicians from whole the world and all continents…

Enjoy the music 🙂
