The first weekend of November is rich in cultural events that will certainly satisfy all tastes and age groups!
In Athens, don’t miss the spectacular Shakespeare’s play “King Lear” at the Pallas Theatre from the 6th of November for only a limited number of performances. The play was first presented last year by the State Theatre of Northern Greece. Nikitas Tsakiroglou, a famous Greek actor, plays the leading role.
An outstanding exhibition dedicated to Vásso Katráki is held at the Museum of Cycladic Art. The exhibition brings together about 110 works of art covering a creative course of 45 years from her first experimentations on stone to the emblematic series of the works that followed.
Skoufá Gallery hosts an exhibition of colourful portraits and paintings created by the famous Greek-Cypriot artist Michael Leventis. Michael Cacoyannis Foundation presents a series of puppet theatre performances addressing not only to children but to adults as well!
Don’t miss the "Crescent Moon Bear", a shadow theatre performance for children that talks about love, persistence, faith, courage, and bravery. (Sunday, 7 November 11.00 and 17.30 pm)
If you are planning a trip to Thessaloniki this weekend welcome the chance to visit the photography exhibition of the Polish photographer Tomasz Moscicki at the Museum of Byzantine Culture. The wonderful “painting-like” pictures reflect the mystical and sacred atmosphere of Mount Athos.
