Maria Farantouri, Tassis Christoyannis, Miltos Logiadis

A Tribute to Mikis Theodorakis

Maria Farantouri, Tassis Christoyannis, Miltos Logiadis

The Athens Epidaurus Festival and Maria Farantouri invite Festival audiences to a magical evening in memory of the late Mikis Theodorakis as a tribute to his invaluable legacy. Farantouri is joined by brilliant baritone Tassis Christoyannis under the baton of renowned conductor Miltos Logiadis.

In the first part, Farantouri will perform pieces from the iconic Canto General, a poem by Pablo Neruda, which was performed for the very first time by Farantouri and Petros Pandis, and has been praised by audiences at the greatest theatre venues around the globe. At the Roman Odeon, we will rediscover it in its original arrangement for a musical ensemble of 15 performers and two choirs (the ERT National Choir and the City of Athens Choir). In the second part, Maria Farantouri and Tassis Christoyannis, always under the baton of Miltos Logiadis, will perform seminal songs that have left a profound mark on half a century of Greek musical history, orchestrated by pianist Achilleas Wastor.
