New production

Handel’s baroque opera Alessandro is presented in a new production at the Athens Concert Hall, directed by the acclaimed American director and choreographer Lucinda Childs. The production will go on from Athens, to tour some of the major European concert halls and festivals (Royal Opera – Versailles, Het Concertgebouw – Amsterdam, Theater an der Wien, Salle Pleyel – Paris, Vichy Opera, “Handel” Festival”, “Enescu” Festival etc.).
The tour will be realized thanks to the generous support of the AUSTRIA CARD G.m.b.H., a member of the LYKOS Group.

The recording of Alessandro featuring the Armonia Atenea and conductor George Petrou was recently released by Decca and has already received prestigious international awards (Diapason d’or, Choc Classica & Choc Classica 2012). It was named Disc of the Month in the Christmas edition of the BBC Magazine, and selected as “IRR Outstanding” by the International Record Review.
