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..

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…

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..

EL GRECO!!!
