ATHENS CALENDAR OF EVENTS

Alkistis Protopsalti- Eleftheria Arvanitaki (1st, 11th and 19th September)

Two voices etched indelibly in the musical path of Greece over the past three decades, come together and offer us the most anticipated musical tour of the coming winter. Always counting on the aura and participation of the audience, and the familiarity of well-loved music, they will perform their favourite songs to the fans that have sung along with them all these years. 1/9 Elefsina, 11/9 Technopolis, 19/9 Veakio Pireaus

Spartacus (8th September) & Giselle (9th September)

The Russian choreographer Yuri Grigorovich, the legend of the Bolshoi, returns to Greece. "After my last visit, I promised that the warm and wonderful audience of your country must experience a great and unique ballet. The "Spartacus" and "Giselle", with new scenery, especially for the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, with great stars, live orchestra and choir, is something I dreamed of many years ago, on my visits to Herodion with the Bolshoi ". Odeon of Herodes Atticus, www.greekfestival.gr

Haris Alexiou – Tania TsaNaklidou (15th September)

“I want to hear songs!” This song forms the catchphrase for the collaboration between Haris and Tania at the Vrahon Theatre – Melina Merkouri in Vyronas. It has much to offer: Passion and power, humour and intimacy, introversion and extroversion. It’s a fusion that promises to dive into the eras and records we loved, and stroll down the memory lane of timeless hits. Vrahon Theatre "Melina Mercouri" , www.festivalvraxon.gr

Lady Gaga’s Artrave: The Artpop Ball (19th September)

Whether you like her or not, Lady Gaga is a phenomenon of our time. She enjoys the same respect as Madonna did when she was "Desperately Seeking Susan" and no one can dispute her pop star quality! It’s very likely that her presence will captivate us for many years to come, so be sure to hold on to your ticket as a souvenir for your children! Olympic Stadium (OAKA), www.lavris.gr

Eleonora Zouganeli – Your Strength, My Strength ( 20th September )

Where her heart beats, where it meets passion and her love for music, that’s where Eleonora Zouganeli will take her audience this summer. With each appearance she shares her exuberant personality, distinct identity and the “soundtrack of her generation”, like she said, features selections from the global music scene, different cultures, bold mixes and her youthful and recent experiences. Athens Concert Hall Garden, www.megaron.gr

Quidam – Cirque du Soleil (20th -28th September)

The secret of the timeless success of the Cirque du Soleil is its ability to transform, convert and reinvent itself. Aesthetics, inspiration, talent and substance, in conjunction with stage narrative, offer a spectacle that will likely be remembered for many years to come. An extravaganza that combines incredible skill and mastery with contemporary theatre, dance, music and visual wonderment. Basketball Stadium (OAKA), www.lavris.gr

Constantine Grammatopoulos – Retrospective Exhibition ( through 21th September)

“It’s an original interpretation of the modern Greek landscape painting, of which only the essence of feeling, emotion, denatured into abstract lines, rhythms and colours remain,” writes the curator of the National Art Gallery, Marina Lambrakis-Plaka about the artist who will forever be remembered as the creator of the artwork on the first readers for children in Greek primary school. B & M Theocharakis Foundation of the Fine Arts & Music, www.thf.gr
