Bill Murray, Jan Vogler & Friends at Odeon of Herodes Atticus


World famous Hollywood actor Bill Murray teams up with acclaimed German cellist Jan Vogler to present an exhilarating evening of music and literature for one night only, on 19 June 2018, at the iconic open air theatre “Odeon of Herodes Atticus” in Athens.

The performance, which is titled “New Worlds”, is Bill Murray’s latest project featuring a rich program of songs and literary readings paired with chamber music led by cellist Jan Vogler. Having already captivated audiences across the globe (the same name album was celebrated with live performances across the world in 2017), “New Worlds” will be presented in a single performance at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus on 19 June 2018 as part of this year’s Athens and Epidaurus Festival.

In this rare live appearance Hollywood actor and comedian Bill Murray will play a role unlike anything he's ever done before. Both in the album that was recently released as well as in the live performance, Murray – as both singer and narrator – performs songs by Foster, Gershwin, Mancini, and Bernstein in addition to reading excerpts from classic American poets and writers (Whitman, Hemingway, Twain) under the sounds of Vogler's Stradivarius cello; a fascinating crossover of music and literature by two great masters.

Also joining them on stage will be violinist Mira Wang and pianist Vanessa Perez.

With Greek surtitles.
