Journey to Eternity at the Greek National Opera

Don’t miss the ballet performance Journey to Eternity at the Greek National Opera from March 02, 2013 until March 20, 2013.

The new production of the GNO Ballet is dedicated to two outstanding figures in the world of music: Eleni Karaindrou and Heitor Villa-Lobos.

In Act I, traditional Brazilian sounds fuse with the spirit of Bach’s music in the superlative suites Bachianas Brasileiras nos. 4, 5 and 9 by Villa-Lobos, one of Latin America’s most important composers. Renato Zanella’s choreography is like a journey with no destination, the only guide being music, which determines the dynamism, freedom and sensuality of the dancers’ bodies.

In Act II, entitled Journey to Eternity, Renato Zanella choreographs some of the most beautiful music written by the famous Greek composer Eleni Karaindrou for the films of eminent Greek filmmaker Theodoros Angelopoulos. The new choreography endeavours to express the emotions evoked by Karaindrou’s music and the images from Angelopoulos’ films.
