EL GRECO – last rehearsals…

The preparation for the Premiere of “El Greco” – a new Greek Opera by George Hatzinasios at 19 and 20 of May – is gradually reaching the final phase. We are now connecting all the elements: music, singing, dance, drama, lights, scenery etc..

Last rehearsals with the Orchestra – we are working on the harmonies, dynamics, tempi – creating the base for the singers and the dancers..

In the meantime at the Theatre, the Stage and Drama will be ready. Vasilis Anastasiou – Stage Director is leaving the building just for a few hours during the day and night! How can a creative work proceed without sleep and proper rest?.. – it is only his secret..

He is responsible for (almost) everything – personally checking every details of the scenery, lights, requisite etc..

“El Greco” – Opera in process

Making Opera is a long and complicated process. It takes a brilliant composer and a devoted, hard-working team of artists, to compile music, libretto and drama, for the beauty of Opera to be captured. We have the pleasure and great honor to be a part of this creation. We, the “El Greco” team!!

The composer – George Hatzinasios: without him,”El Greco” would not come to life…

…playing piano, showing the right way of interpretation, always accompanied by his good mood and immense optimism.

Stage Director “DIRETTORE” – Vasilis Anastasiou: the man of creativity, inspiration and “magic” on the stage.

You know Silvia as “Violetta” in Verdi’s “La Traviata” or “Norma” in Bellini’s master Opera. Not only a great music interpreter,  she also knows how to “die with a smile”! 🙂

When someone or something is moving or dancing on the stage, only one person knows exactly when, where and how to do it properly. Our skillful and competent choreographer, Maria Thomopoulou!

ElGreco_Maria_solo.. with her natural lightness and elegance, she can “move” without any effort our team (-of 250 kg total)! 😀
