Nonika Galinea: The Bequest

Galinea site


The great lady of the theatre, Nonika Galinea, appeared at the Athens Concert Hall, performing leading roles in works that were rarely performed in Greece. On the occasion of these collaborations, and in accordance with her own wishes, the Megaron presents eight unique theatrical costumes from important performances, created by the Oscar-winning costume designer Theoni Vachlioti-Oldridge.

The costumes, along with the six designs that inspired them, as well as exclusive photographs, were bequeathed to Megaron the Athens Concert Hall by Nonika Galinea, the space she loved and honored, inspired by her close collaboration and friendship with Christos Lambrakis.

Along with the unique costumes and designs, Nonika Galinea donated to Megaron a large-scale painting by the artist Vana Xenou, which adorns the Friends of Megaron Lounge.
