Η Μαρία Φαραντούρη τραγουδά Μίκη Θεοδωράκη
This year, the Rialto Theatre in its new form, celebrates two decades of presence, marked by thousands of performances, events and collaborations with important artists and organisations, as well as emotions, experiences and memories shared with more than one and a half million spectators and hundreds of thousands of artists from Cyprus and abroad. The celebratory programme of the Rialto in May evokes the history and the course of the Theatre since its re-opening, as well as those elements that contributed to its establishment as one of the most important cultural organisations of Cyprus.
The rich and diverse programme of events organised on the occasion of the Theatre’s 20-year anniversary includes a tribute to Mikis Thodorakis, featuring the composer’s most celebrated singer, Maria Farantouri. It is worth mentioning that the inauguration of the Rialto Theatre in 1999 took place in the presence of the great composer who presented Electra, the lyric tragedy.
Maria Farantouri will be performing some of the most famous songs of Mikis Thodorakis, with: Irina Velentinova (piano), Mariliza Papadouri-Papangelidi (cello), Dimitris Papangelides (guitar). Participate the Choir of Epilogi Cultural Movement, conducted by Angelina Nicolaidou. Orchestration for Epilogi: Christos Stavrinides, Antrianos Rousias (Flute).
