Travel Tip: Opera in Greece

Alessandro: By Georg Friedrich Handel
ATHENS  •  Megaron, The Athens Concert Hall, The Alexandra Trianti Hall  •  Ongoing

Georg Friedrich Handel: Alessandro

Fresh from their recent recording, the Camerata and George Petrou bring Handelís masterly Alessandro (1726) to life on stage. This production of the opera, a genuine tour de force which makes almost superhuman vocal demands on its three protagonists, features baroque specialists and is directed by the American choreographer, Lucinda Childs. The historical elements of the libretto simply provide a backdrop for a phantasmagorical fairytale in which the florid world of the baroque is combined with the off-screen romances and intrigues of Hollywood in the 1930s.
