ATHENS CALENDAR OF EVENTS

Die Fledermaus (22 February- 18 May)

The most popular operetta by Johan Strauss II and the first to be staged by the Greek National Opera in 1940, returns in a new production. A light-hearted piece with plenty of humour and plot twists, it is defined by the majestic music of royal Vienna. The National Opera's new production will again be performed in Greek, but this time with a new translation of the prose and lyrics by Dimitris Dimopoulos. The director, Alexandros Efklidis, who has already produced several successful revivals of operettas, moves the action to the Athenian bourgeoisie of the 1960s, where Strauss' heroes meet with surprise guests at Prince Orlofsky's wild party. At the Olympia Theatre.

The exhibition presents the history of Yannis Tsarouchis' painting, through chronological groupings, recreating the environment in which he lived and the influences he was exposed to, throughout his artistic progress. At the Benaki Museum, Pireos Street Annexe.
