Bluebeard’s Castle – Gianni Schicchi

The Greek National Opera presents an anthology piece comprising two magnificent one-act operas: one dramatic - Bluebeard’s Castle in a new staging by Themelis Glynatsis; the other comic - Gianni Schicchi directed by John Fulljames. Two works that both premiered in the same year (1918), in Budapest and New York respectively. The evening opens with Bartók’s brooding and bloody masterpiece and closes with Puccini’s dark comedy - a light-hearted farce considered the most radiant and joyous work in the composer’s oeuvre. This production is made possible by a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) to enhance the GNO’s artistic outreach.
