Journey to Eternity
Greek National Opera |

The GNO’s extremely successful production, Journey to Eternity, which was first presented in the 2012-13 season, returns in a new version that features the addition of new themes by composer Eleni Karaindrou, for six performances at the Olympia Theatre in February 2014. Karaindrou’s poetic and highly resonant music, which formed the backdrop of numerous films by internationally acclaimed late director Theo Angelopoulos, are what inspired choreographer Renato Zanella to create this dance journey. Coupled with the costumes and sets designed by Katerina Angelopoulou, and the movement of the Greek National Opera Ballet’s dancers, it brings to the stage scenes, themes and symbols from Angelopoulos’s ecumenical films.

With the GNO’s Orchestra, Principal Dancers, Soloists, Coryphees and Corps de ballet
