Markella Hatziano returns to the Athens State Orchestra



You don’t think sounds can paint? And yet they can! If you want to “see” an ancient forest deity flirting with beautiful nymphs, a couple in love exchanging passionate kisses by the sea under the midday sun, bustling celebrations in Baghdad or a ship crashing on the rocks swept away by raging waves, all you have to do is come to our concert, conducted by Nikos Haliassas, together with the famous mezzo-soprano Markella Hatziano! For the first time, these images and many others too, will come to life before your very eyes with the help of Katerina Barsukova’s imaginative sand animation.


19:30 Introductory speech for ticket holders
