ATHENS CALENDAR OF EVENTS

Three Sisters, by Anton Chekhov (from 11 February)

To the Poreia, my sisters, to the Poreia. Written in 1901, at the turn of the 20th century, the play is about expectation. The playwright characterises it as a “comedy” and brings each character face to face with their hopes, worries and the reality of a merciless time. The exiled heroines live within the confines of a narrow family unit, keeping the hope alive that they will return to Moscow, the ideal city of their childhood, without any effort on their part.

The Barber of Seville by Gioachino Rossini (3 to 28 February)

The National Opera, in a new co-production with the Bologna Municipal Theatre, presents the most famous Italian comic opera. The witty, svelte and melodic music accompanies a series of comic events, as the barber Figaro helps Count Almaviva court the beautiful Rosine, who resides with her elderly guardian Doctor Bartolo, who in turn, has his eyes set on her. Moving the action to the 60s successfully highlights the timelessness of the basic themes of the opera.
